Initial Mode allows Service within 36 Months
- Similar to current train service operation
- Cars coupled into short trains
- Trains have human operator in lead car
- Advanced controls allow decreased headways
MicroWay Mass Transit Cars are Coupled into Short Trains
Now available, manually-controlled, coupled train MicroWay Mass Transit
offers high capacity urban rail mass transit that exceeds light rail
capacity but at significantly lower cost and time to service. The
13-passenger air-conditioned cars feature stand-up cabin height and provide
for 30% seated passengers. The self-propelled coaches run on rubber tires
that roll on continuous steel rail surface that are located inside enclose
rail tubes for all-weather operation. Passengers are assured a
vibration-free, very low noise ride. The low-profile, stainless-steel guideway
resembles a pair of small monorails and is always elevated over existent
street and freeway rights-of-way. As a general rule, no additional
right-of-way is required for MicroWay Mass Transit system installation.
Future Personal Automated Transport (PAT) service
Non-stop 30 to 65-mph passenger service with small (4 to 6-passenger), automated cars operate on a 24/7 demand basis for no-wait transport. Cars travel on a non-stop basis from boarding station to exit station without timewasting and trip-time extending intermediate station stops typical of city buses and light rail or monorail trains. Passengers are accommodated in spacious seats in quiet, smooth-ride cars.
Future Dualmode Electric Car service
The MicroWay system will enable users of future dualmode electric cars to travel from ramp to ramp and arrive at urban area exit ramps with fully charged batteries for local travel to and from destinations. Dualmode car cost is expected to compare favorably with that of current small cars.
Systems pay their own way without taxpayer support
