A privately-funded surface transportation network with the convenience, capacity, and cost to replace buses, trains, cars, trucks, and short flights.
100% solar powered. It’s carbon-free and zero pollution. Solar cells on the track provide the energy to charge pods.
Nonstop travel at 45 mph (72 km/h) along main roads and 135 mph (217 km/h) along highways. It's no wonder why we say that our pods really fly.
100,000 times safer
compared to roadways. Safety is similar to commercial airlines or existing fully-automated, grade-separated transit.
Transit X is affordable and fares are comparable to conventional mass transit. Private financing is possible even with low population density (350 people/km2).
Flights beginning in 2018.
Cities and towns can apply now to begin service in 2019. Installation is fast and not disruptive to neighborhoods. Our first pilot in Boston, Massachusetts, USA will be ready in 2018.
Un-paving the way to go car-free
In cities around the world, current transportation is in sad shape: commutes are long and stressful, infrastructure is costly to build and maintain, vehicles pollute and emit green house gases, and millions of accidents and thousands of deaths occur every year.
Transit X™ solves these problems and provides nonstop, 24/7, wait-free, resilient, all-weather service that is quiet, attractive, safe, and seamlessly fits within cities, beside highways, and along rail corridors.
Pods, each carrying a single passenger or up to a family of five, quietly cruise above traffic under a narrow track. Destinations are entered via smart phone or kiosk prior to boarding. Passengers board pods at stops that are as convenient as taxi or bus stops. A pod takes off and cruises nonstop until landing at the destination.
Transit X is a fully-automated transportation network with high-capacity interchanges and stops that provide fast and wait-free travel. A single track provides the capacity of a 12-lane highway. Installation is fast and minimally disruptive. It has a lower visual impact than vehicles and roadways. Transit X provides service to the final destination (last mile) for both passengers and freight.
Transit X helps make cities both greener and cleaner. Unsightly black asphalt can be supplanted by an elegant ribbon that unifies a city. Transit X can help a city recover its most valuable resources — land and clean air. Once again, cities can have a vibrant and active street life.
Transit X is offered as a service to municipalities and organizations without public funding or capital budgets. Transit X is a privately owned and operated mobility service that scales to service both the world’s largest cities as well as low density suburbs.
Happy mass transit!
