Forget about your car. The next transport will be SkyTran
skyTran is a patented, high-speed, low-cost, elevated Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) system. The skyTran network of computer-controlled, 2-person “jet-like” vehicles employs state-of-the-art passive Magnetic Levitation (Maglev) technology. The system transports passengers in a fast, safe, green, and economical manner. skyTran intends to revolutionize public transportation and, with it, urban and suburban commuting.
skyTran is a NASA Space Act company, headquartered at the NASA Ames Research Center near Mountain View, California. NASA uses Space Act Agreements as the primary means for partnering with the community. skyTran greatly benefits from such an arrangement by having access to a wide range of NASA technologies and capabilities and being able to combine NASA expertise, assets, and information with its own core competencies.
