What Happened to Astronaut's Planned Launch of Personal Rapid Transit in Austin?

Excited tweet from pod promoter and astronaut Richard Garriott:

Meeting today with Austin and London PRT teams. Over the next few days we will be pitching to Austin and regional leaders! Wish us luck!

5:32 PM Sep 21st from Tweetie

There's a mention of Richard Garriott's pod plan for Austin in this interview in May:

The segment with Richard “Lord British” Garriott is my favorite as he envisions an over head tram network of personal pods to shuffle people around Austin. He’s even considering putting money behind the idea!

No news about the September 21st meeting on the Austin PRT website or the Austin Citizens for PRT website.

Must have fizzled on the launch pad.
