SkyTran Individual Maglev System

The American company UniModal Transport Solutions developed a concept for a very high-capacity and high-speed Personal Rapid Transport (PRT) network.

Each pod holds two passengers (what do families do?) which zips around above the city suspended by a maglev system. People can get on and off at every city block or every 400 metres.

SkyTran has no fixed routes or timetables. Users can simply enter any departure portal, get into the first empty vehicle in the queue and select their destination. The vehicle then speeds up on the acceleration lane and enters the high-speed overhead guideway.

What makes the system so advanced is that the passengers are completley independent; there is no fixed schedule or timetable to which abide by. The pods come by so often, passengers simply wait for the next available vehicle, then plug in their destination. The cart then travels back onto the main skyway and picks up speed, zinging the passengers to their destination autobahn style, reaching speeds of up to 240 km/hour.
