2 SkyTran Features SkyTran vehicles are waiting for you whenever you need one. SkyTran vehicles are waiting for you whenever you need one. A SkyTran vehicle takes you non-stop to your destination from 25 to 100 mph. A SkyTran vehicle takes you non-stop to your destination from 25 to 100 mph. SkyTran is quiet and energy efficient. SkyTran is quiet and energy efficient. SkyTran provides privacy, safety, and personal freedom like a car. SkyTran provides privacy, safety, and personal freedom like a car. SkyTran is Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) SkyTran is Personal Rapid Transit (PRT)

3 Small Personalized Vehicles Lightweight Guideways Inexpensive Portals Standard Utility Pole Supports Low Cost Modular Design

4 …then descend to the off line portal closest to your selected destination Non-stop travel Vehicles exit the high speed guideway before slowing… How SkyTran Works Traffic NEVER slows down while ON the high speed guideway!

5 8 ft. Clearance SkyTran structures do not obstruct cars, pedestrian any surface traffic. One lane of non-stop SkyTran guideway provides the same hourly capacity as a three lane freeway

6 Propelled by standard electric Linear Synchronous Motors (LSM). MagLev & LSM results in 200+ MPG energy efficiency Key Technology Proven, passive MagLev technology replaces wheels. Only one moving part…Virtually No Maintenance.

7 On-site Assembly Uses 4 Basic Parts Guideway Guideway Vehicle Vehicle Portal Portal Poles Poles Designed for low cost and fast installation Cost: <$10 Million per mile

8 SkyTran Is A Network SkyTran takes you anywhere a car can go.

9 Scales Up To A Network Crossing traffic at different levels prevents collisions.

10 Comfortable entry and exit Using SkyTran

11 SkyTran disappears into the cityscape Nonstop Guideway Parked vehicles waiting for you Boarding portal Minimum visual impact compared to an equivalent capacity three lane highway or a lower capacity light rail No expensive, destructive right-of-way acquisitions required, just easements on existing sidewalks

14 Elevated Guideway No possibility of collisions with cars, trucks, pedestrians, children, animals or road debris.Elevated Guideway No possibility of collisions with cars, trucks, pedestrians, children, animals or road debris. In-line travel on a single lane Constant spacing and speed sensing for collision avoidance is simple. No dangerous passing & arbitrary lane changing.In-line travel on a single lane Constant spacing and speed sensing for collision avoidance is simple. No dangerous passing & arbitrary lane changing. No derailments Impossible to derail. Also, cannot slide out of control in rain, ice or snow. All Weather Operation No derailments Impossible to derail. Also, cannot slide out of control in rain, ice or snow. All Weather Operation Emergency braking High-g emergency braking. SkyTran can safely stop 10 times faster than a car. Emergency braking High-g emergency braking. SkyTran can safely stop 10 times faster than a car. SkyTran Safety Features 40,000+Auto Deaths In U.S.

15 SkyTran Reduces Air Pollution

16 Gate to City Service SkyTran is small! Boarding structures can be placed within 200 feet of each and every airlines arrival gates. EXAMPLE: Arrival on United Airlines Deplane and be on your way to the city in 60 seconds

17 SkyTran Doesnt Replace Cars SkyTran handles majority of commuter traffic SkyTran handles majority of commuter traffic SkyTran doesnt replace car for family trips SkyTran doesnt replace car for family trips SkyTran doesnt replace a trip to Home Depot SkyTran doesnt replace a trip to Home Depot

18 SkyTran Summary More affordable than driving More affordable than driving Super low maintenance Super low maintenance Faster than auto, bus or light-rail Faster than auto, bus or light-rail Safer than any other transit mode Safer than any other transit mode More energy efficient = 200 mpg More energy efficient = 200 mpg No air or noise pollution No air or noise pollution Minimal land/environmental impact Minimal land/environmental impact
