4 Sky Bus Suspended Railway system- Light weight coaches Tramway Category- Constitution of India- Art.366(20) Operates parallel to existing roads - within municipality limits

5 It Is Pollution –Free Noise –Free Economical Air-Conditioned Travel

6 What is Skybus? A unique mass transit system which can be put in any congested and crowded city within 2 years for ease and safe transportation, without loss of time

7 Description Heavy 52/60 kg/m rails 8m x 2m box enclosure Supported by1m dia columns Never collide or capsize

8 Capacity Can carry persons per hour (pph) Can be extended to pph Can shift 20ft containers for corner to corner No other modes are capable

9 Components Sky way Sky Bogie Sky coach Sky Station Transverser Arrangements

10 Sky Way Path in which Sky Bus travels Includes concrete box - supported by piers Two Rails - approximately fixed - to guide the bus
