Microsoft campus in Redmond, Washington, is a unique suburban job center in the U.S., with 30,000 workers from the same company within one square mile. The area is plagued with terrible traffic congestion, and MS has announced plans to add another 12,000 workers. Bettercampus.org has proposed a unique solution for Microsoft campus expansion, personal rapid transit (PRT). PRT is a packet switched people mover, faster than a car. It solves the transit "last mile" problem on campus, making transit and carpooling more effective; thus, reduces traffic congestion.
