THE SKYCABS DESIGN OUR VISION

Panoramic views unfold as small 8 seater driverless cabs with plush seats and large windows, hanging on each side of a narrow beam and running in both directions travel elevated 8-10 metres above city and suburban pavements.

Passengers are picked up close to home and delivered to dispersed destinations.

Cabs are designed to travel at up to 80km/hr in urban areas.

PLANNED SERVICE

Large numbers of cabs offer great cab frequency day and night, seven days a week.

Only one to four minutes waiting time, so no timetables are necessary.

Cabs are planned to be continuously available on scheduled routes.

Full cabs become express cabs to the first destination, bypassing off-line stations for free cab flow.

Journeys completed in half the time of cars and other modes of public transport during peak travel times.

Independent programmed scheduling available direct to specific destinations e.g. an airport or hospital.
