Presentasjon om: "Fortidens løsninger !. Hva er sportaxi? PRT- GRT- MRT • Automatiserte små vogner (2-6 pers.) på separate spor, gjerne opphøyd, med stasjoner på sidespor."— Utskrift av presentasjonen:
Light Rail has stations about 1 mile apart along one central corridor of a zone A large number of stations spreads out the load, minimizing queuing time at stations Lateral intermodal travel is eliminated with stations everywhere in the zone For a given budget 19 miles of SkyTran can be installed for each mile of Light Rail. This means we can build an extensive distributed network instead of one line. This requires extensive intermodal lateral travel by car, bus or taxi just to get to and from these stations SkyTran is DISTRIBUTED & can go everywhere Light Rail is LINEAR SkyTran advantage #5: Go Anywhere
Slim SkyTran guideways can be installed directly into sidewalks using slender columns and/or attached to buildings Small, quiet SkyTran vehicles can go everywhere without needing destructive right-of-ways & will blend in nicely with any urban architecture. SkyTran advantage #6: Minimum Land Use With Light Rail Same Street with Higher Capacity SkyTran
SkyTran is Solid State Transportation Only one moving part… The 100 mph SkyTran vehicle itself! (No pistons, no valves, no transmission, no bearings, no tires, no steering linkages, etc., etc.!)
100 mph SkyTran would: save billions eliminate the need for scheduled departures provide identical travel times provide many more station opportunities With stops, the average speed for the 125 mph train will be 100 mph Compare to proposed California Inter-City High Speed Rail Service between SF & LA Now 100 mph SkyTran would beat jet airplane travel times for travel up to 450 miles! 141 mph speeds increase that range to 650 miles!
