This paper presents a comparative study of an automatic dedicated single track people mover and an automatic dedicated double track people mover. The study examined both `system' and infrastructure aspects. The paper describes the specific operational features of this type of line. An application to a medium-sized French city demonstrates the feasibility of this mode of operation and the savings which can result.
