High Capacity Urban Mass Transit
Roam’s MegaWay Can Fulfill Large-Scale Urban Mass Transit Needs
MegaWay Mass Transit systems are well-suited for large, very dense cities. High-capacity urban transit MegaWay systems offer passenger movement capacities similar to that of heavy rail mass transit systems such as subways. These systems operate on the full-size SuperWay guideways and use larger, 20-ft 30-passenger cars. Because of the unique SuperWay communications and control system, trains and later, single automated cars can operate at much shorter headways than other types of large mass transit system, allowing for very high passenger throughput.
Manually Controlled MegaWay Urban Mass Transit Option
Now available, manually-controlled MegaWay high-capacity mass transit services at significantly lower cost and time to service than either heavy or light rail systems. The 30-passenger, air-conditioned coaches provide seating for 16 passengers each. The coaches run on rubber tires that roll on continuous steel road surfaces located inside the enclosed SuperWay guideways for all-weather operation. Passengers are assured a vibration-free, low-noise ride. The low-profile, stainless-steel SuperWay resembles a pair of small monorails and is always elevated over street rights of way so that there is no impact on street traffic. As a general rule, no added right of way is required to install the elevated SuperWays.
Commuter SuperWay Service
Now available, manually-controlled, MegaWay Commuter Rail trains offer fast (85-mph) commuter transport at significantly lower cost and time to service than conventional heavy car and passenger commuter systems. The 12-passenger air-conditioned cars provide seats for all passengers. (No standing) The self-propelled coaches run on rubber tires that roll on continuous steel road surfaces located inside enclosed wheelway tubes for all-weather operation. Passengers are assured a vibration-free, low-noise ride. CarFerries also carry passengers in their own cars as parts of the MegaWay trains.
The low-profile, stainless-steel SuperWay resembles a pair of small monorails and is always elevated over existent street and freeway rights-of-way so that there is no impact on street and road traffic. Railroad lines are not used, and station locations are not restricted to railroad routes. As a general rule, no additional right-of-way is required for MegaWay system installation.
Future Automated Commuter Automobile & Urban Passenger Services
Non-stop 65-mph urban, and 85-mph commuter rail passenger services with small (max 12 passenger and max 6 passenger), automated cars operate on a 24-hour, seven-day, on frequent schedule basis for no-wait travel. The smaller individual personal transport cars travel on a non-stop basis from local station to destination station without time-wasting and trip-time extending intermediate station stops typical of conventional city buses and light rail or monorail trains. Passengers are accommodated in spacious seats in quiet, smooth-ride cars. The larger 12-passenger cars offer frequently scheduled, 24-hour, seven-day service with stops only where passengers are waiting to be picked up or let off.
Future Urban Area Automobile Service
Standard private as well as future electric or hybrid automobiles with passengers are transported on individual automated car ferries. Travel is on a non-stop basis from auto entry ramp to exit ramp without traffic delays typical of street and freeway travel. Passengers are accommodated in their own personal autos for a quiet and smooth ride. Drivers may relax, read, work, or even sleep during travel. Destination control and system exit is controlled by the auto driver. Passengers arrive at destination ramps in either their own cities or nearby urban areas ready to drive to their ultimate local destinations.
Future Urban Area Cargo Container Service
Automated cargo containers with up to three tons of cargo are transported on an individual basis. Travel is non-stop from origin terminal to destination terminal without traffic delays typical of street and freeway transport. Electric power is supplied from the SuperWay for refrigeration of perishable cargo. Cargo is provided a smooth ride on rubber tires operated on smooth, continuous steel roadways.
Compatible with High-Speed Inter-City MegaWay Systems
All personal transport and car ferry MegaWay vehicles are compatible and inter operable with hi-speed inter-city 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. Inter-city passenger cars can access stations at various points in a city.
