MegaWay High Speed SuperWay Service
120-mph Non-stop Passenger, Automobile & Cargo Service in Single
System over Existent Highway Rights of Way
Low-cost alternate to costly turnpike projects such as canceled Trans Texas Corridor Plan
- High-speed, inter-city MegaWay can carry most inter-city passenger,
cargo and automobile traffic on a single pair of small, low-cost
guideways installed over interstate highway rights of way.
- Avoids the very high cost of additional highways and railroads and right-of-way.
- High-speed, inter-city MegaWay is low-cost, low-risk and near-term.
- Rubber tires in enclosed rail tubes and electric propulsion for noise-free operation.
- Electrically powered vehicles with rail-supplied power are non-polluting.
- Heavy-duty CargoWay guideways can be added over same interstate right-of-ways to transport large trucks and containers should future need arise.
High speed inter-city SuperWay passenger train service
Non-stop and local 120-mph passenger service with manually controlled,
coupled trains that carry 10 to 13 passengers per car. Passengers are accommodated in
spacious airliner-style seats in quiet, smooth-ride cars. Non-sway ride is
assured by wide (7-ft) car tracks. Weather proof operation allows year-around
service without delays.
Unique guideway design allows future growth to
include automated coupled trains, 9-passenger non-stop group transport cars, and
personal automated transport (PAT) vehicles. These 4 to 6 passenger PAT cars can
provide a 24-hour, seven-day schedule for no wait service.
High speed CarLiner™ car-train service
Passengers and their private cars are transported at 120-mph on short
CarLiners from origin station to destination without stops at intermediate
stations as is typical of conventional trains. Passengers are accommodated in
comfortable WhisperLiner™ cars for a quiet, smooth-ride. Drivers and passengers
may relax, read, work, or even sleep during travel. Passengers arrive at
destination cities with their own cars ready to drive to their ultimate local
destinations. CarLiners allow rapid loading and unloading of cars by their
High speed inter-city CargoLiner™ service
CargoLiners move special cargo containers with up to three tons of cargo at
120-mph in short trains. Electric power is supplied from the guideway for
refrigeration of perishable cargo. Cargo is provided a smooth ride on rubber
tires operated on smooth, continuous steel rails. Containers have rapid load and
unload features, may be trucked to and from terminals, can be moved and loaded
with standard forklifts.
Compatible with local urban MegaWay systems
All high speed MegaWay trains & vehicles are compatible and interoperable with local
urban MegaWay systems. Vehicles may transition freely between local systems and
inter-city systems for seamless transportation between points in one city to
points in another city. High speed inter-city passenger trains can access stations
at various points in a city.
System offers future growth not possible with expensive high-speed rail systems
The MegaWay high speed rail system will first transition from manual
control by on-board train crews to fully automated trains for reduced operating
cost and more frequent service. At at later time, the system will provide
individual automated passenger and cargo cars and capability for passengers to
travel on a non-stop basis in the comfort of their own automobiles for faster
schedules and reduced total trip times.
