The "Cyber Tran" Increases in air pollution and congestion -
and a rapidly growing vehicle population driven more miles each year - makes
finding solutions to personal transportation one of the most important challenges
facing metropolitan areas. Rail cars in the CyberTran system are demand responsive
- stopping only at stations where passengers order them. By utilizing computer control
and "smart Card: technology, they transport riders directly to their destinations at
speed of up to 1250 MPH, by passing intermediate stations and minimizing unnecessary
stops. The 38-foot vehicles are designed to run down the median strip of a freeway or
in other small areas. Light weight and smaller size means the cost of constructing the
guide way, power systems, and stations needed to support the vehicles, is up to 75% less
than that of traditional light rail design. CyberTrans’ proximity to Silicon Valley
provides an important link to computer technology, essential to the competition.
