Car-like convenience without congestion, crashes, or carbon emissions
Podways make cities safe, quiet, green and walkable. A podway is an automated transit network with the convenience, capacity, and cost to supplant cars, buses, trains, trucks, ferries, and short flights.
Powered by 100% renewable energy. Carbon-free and zero pollution. Over 10 times more efficient than electric vehicles. Podways can rapidly decarbonize transportation and achieve Vision Zero Pollution
Nonstop door-to-door travel at 72 km/h (45 mph) along main roads and 242 km/h (150 mph) along highways or railways.
100,000 times safer
compared to roadways. Safety is similar to commercial airlines or existing 100% automated, grade-separated transit (Level 6 Autonomy). Vision Zero Collision.
Fares similar to existing public transportation. Low capital and operational costs enables projects to be privately-funded with no government funding or subsidies.
Five other PRT systems are currently operating around the world. A pilot podway was installed near Foxborough, Massachusetts in October 2021. All projects inclue a pilot and a phased implementation. Installation takes 12 months and not disruptive to neighborhoods.
Green, Quiet, Safe, and Walkable
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 greenhouse gases, and millions of accidents and deaths occur every year on our roads. We are addicted to cars.
Transit X™ builds privately-funded public transit podways that solve these problems and provides non-stop, zero wait, 24x7, resilient, all-weather service that is quiet, attractive, and safe. A podway seamlessly fits within cities and suburbs and eliminates congestion.
Ultra-light pods, seating 2 to 6 passengers, quietly travel alongside roadways suspended under a thin guideway. Stops can be on every block, parking lot and loading dock. Destinations are entered via smart phone or kiosk prior to boarding. A passenger boards a pod at ground level. A lift raises the pod to the guideway where it merges onto the main podway and travels nonstop until landing at the destination. Fares are similar to existing public transportation.
Pods are fully-automated electric vehicles traveling on podways that provide fast, wait-free, and door-to-door service for both passengers and freight. A podway can move more people than a subway. Installation is fast and not disruptive.
We help make communities green and walkable. Unsightly black asphalt can transform into green and open spaces. Podways help restore safety, vibrancy, and liveability in communities.
Podways cost less than roadways, providing equitable and sustainable transportation without government funding. Better transportation boosts economies and improves everyone's quality of life.

Projects are privately funded
Podway projects are privately-funded given a long-term concession agreement with utility-like rights-of-way. Please see our proposals, then contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for a custom proposal or feasibility study.
