We produced this video for Transit X on a low budget and cannot wait for the first one to be built ! Support them if you can and share the video, spread the word !

Transit X is an automated pod network with the cost, capacity, and convenience to supplant cars, buses, trains, and trucks. We have many municipalities who want Transit X, but most want to see an operational system. Altran is our global engineering partner who has validated the technical feasibility of the system. Members of our team have designed, built, and operated other fully-automated mass transit systems.
Transit X is a safe, sustainable, low-cost mass transit alternative with the potential to replace cars, buses, trains, trucks, and even short flights as the travel method of choice.
We’re gearing up for our first demonstration in Boston, Massachusetts, which will be ready in 2018.
Rethinking mass transit
Cars remain the dominant mode of transportation, yet billions of people suffer from the negative impact of our cars and roadways: long commutes, costly infrastructure, carbon emissions, air pollution, and crashes. We call this “Roads Disease” — and we all suffer from it.
Transit X is a cure for Roads Disease.
The exciting thing is — cities are taking action. Across the country, cities and towns are migrating towards “smart city” initiatives in an effort to update their infrastructure with smarter, safer, more eco-friendly and economic ways to structure their transportation systems. This is further bolstered by the private sector paying diligent attention to the opportunities with the Smart City momentum. Transit X will help push our transportation into a new era through private financing for Smart City infrastructure without having to depend on public financing.
Many assume that it looks like an evolution of the system we already have: ridesharing, electric vehicles, and self-driving cars have all become media darlings of the venture capital world.
But what if the real answer is more radical than that? What if, instead of just modifying our existing modes of transportation, there was a way to fundamentally redesign the way we get from point A to point B?
The Transit X Factor
Transit X is a completely new approach to transportation that combines the convenience of personal cars, the capacity of trains, the speed of flying, and the sustainability of bicycles.
With Transit X, passengers travel in pods suspended from a narrow track. Pods carry up to five passengers. Special pods carry wheelchairs and freight. Tracks run alongside existing roads and highways, so Transit X is minimally disruptive to cities’ existing infrastructure.
Passengers board at stops that are more convenient than subway stations or bus stops. Simply enter your destination via smartphone or kiosk, then climb aboard. Once you board your pod, it takes off, flying above the cars on the road and carrying you non-stop to your destination.
Transit X is:
Transit X is 100% solar powered, carbon free and zero emissions. Solar panels on the track provide the energy to power electric pods.
Transit X pods travel non stop at 45 mph (72 km/h) along main roads and 135 mph (217 km/h) along highways.
Transit X pods are quiet and smooth. Transit X fits seamlessly into cities. Tracks can be installed along roads, highways, and railways. Installation is fast and not disruptive to neighborhoods.
Transit X is incredibly safe — similar to the safety of commercial airlines and orders of magnitude safer than cars — even autonomous cars.
Transit X is economical for individuals and municipalities alike. Transit X arranges private financing for projects — and does not require public financing. Passenger fares are affordable — comparable to existing mass transit.
