BOARD QUICKLY

FREQUENT DEPARTURES

Can I go when I want? Yes! With AirTrac vehicles showing up at my neighborhood station at intervals measured in minutes, I do not have to plan my life around the “train” schedule.  I can simply walk, ride my bike, drive a short distance and park, or have a family member drop me off at the station. Even schedule a pickup through the neighborhood minibus service.

EFFICIENT STATION DESIGN

Each urban and suburban Air Trac Transport station will be tailored to existing environmental circumstances. Since each station will be a traffic generator, stations can be strategically located to spur future economic development in areas of cities and towns where future development is desired. The integration of an Air Trac Transport station in older neighborhoods can help reinvigorate existing communities where unemployment is high, and is lacking commercial development and investment. If local mass transit systems are planned and/or already in place, such as: buses, street cars, or car pools, these modes of transportation can connect to new Air Trac Transport stations. The architectural design of each station will harmonize with the current architectural theme of each community and neighborhood it serves, as well as, exemplify new concepts in technology.

TRAVEL FAST

TRAVEL OVERHEAD

Traveling overhead is a widely accepted mode of transportation as demonstrated by the monorail systems operating in Osaka Japan, Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, Sidney Australia, and Wuppertal Germany among others. It is interesting to note that the Wuppertal overhead electric railway was built between 1897 and 1903. By operating above the ground, AirTrac will not interfere with existing transportation systems. Working synergistically with current highway infrastructure, AirTrac can move as many as 12,000 passengers per hour per route. Urban express service will travel at approximately 90 mph and long distance transport will reach speeds of 150 to 200 mph.   We can open unconnected labor and business markets as we go cross-country to places that do not have an expressway.

EGRESS SYSTEM

The air cushion technology used by AirTrac creates a system that is not only fast, but safe. The system is controlled by computers reading sensor information collected through the GPS satellites. If, for any reason, the system is interrupted and a portion has to be shut down for an extended time, an emergency egress system will be employed. The passenger vehicle is mechanically decoupled from the support structure and lowered on cables much like an elevator. Passengers can safely disembark instead of being delayed for hours. These safety protocols will make travelling by AirTrac the safest method of modern transportation.

PAY LESS

PUBLIC TRANSPORT WITH A PROFIT

While most public transportation systems operate at a loss, AirTrac is designed to have low operating and maintenance costs, which allows for the system to generate revenue. The estimated operating expense of an AirTrac system between Cincinnati and Columbus will be $65.6 million. With ticket prices based on half the cost of operating an automobile, the system’s revenue will be $169.2 million, resulting in a yearly profit of $103.6 Million. As AirTrac makes a profit, the already low price of construction can be offset in just a few years.

STAY CONNECTED

CONNECTIVITY: ONLINE AND ON LAND

Smooth air cushion transportation provides express service point to point without weather, construction, or accident delays. While en route one can simply relax, socialize, sight see, or use the provided internet connection for work and play.

AirTrac is a different kind of mass transit system based on patented STAR (Standard Technology Advanced Rail) methodology. High-speed fail-safe switching creates a system that will augment the interstate highway system to dramatically decrease net travel time. We can open unconnected labor and business markets as we go cross-country to places that do not have an expressway.

CONNECT ON-THE-GO

AirTrac provides FREE high-speed internet services to keep you connected on-the-go. Never miss a second with constant access wherever you may be.

LOW COST OPERATION

AirTrac is designed for efficiency. When you don’t have to stop or slow down for accidents, traffic, construction and weather, you save fuel. When you don’t have to get off the ground, you save fuel. With minimal drag and high fuel efficiency, AirTrac will challenge conventional travel methods. Route changes at 70 mph and travel at 150 to 200 gets you to your destination quickly. Consumable parts are minimized reducing maintenance cost. AirTrac will likely transport you at half the cost of operating your automobile.

ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS

Air cushion technology frees the vehicle from friction with the ground. High efficiency propulsion is quiet and effective, moving more passengers and cargo on many fuel types. In addition, AirTrac can decrease highway traffic, further reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
