Sierra Club supports Milpitas PRT

In their letter of support, the Sierra Club stated:

Our Transportation Committee’s review of the project and governance structure show that it will both involve and benefit the residents of Milpitas. … In addition, with 12 stations serving the high-density area around the BART Transit Center, this transit investment by LoopWorks could support all 5 goals of the City’s DRAFT Trail, Pedestrian, and Bicycle Master Plan (Executive Summary, page 5). As stated there, “Safer bicycle and pedestrian connections to the BART station and other transit options are particularly important to better serve the growing number of jobs in the city.” … we see PRT as a technology that could provide clean, quiet, and responsive public transportation that’s available 24 hours a day.
