Roam Transport Systems SuperWay Overview

Roam Transport’s SuperWay is a revolutionary, multi-use, elevated duo-rail transportation system for automated local or long distance transport of personal automobiles, public transit vehicles, and cargo. Attractive, elevated duo-rail SuperWays are installed along existing street and road rights of way with minimum impact on the environment and activities of the area. All vehicles move silently on rubber tires enclosed inside the stainless steel guideways.

A Typical Trip — MicroWay

This video describes a typical Roam MicroWay Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) trip from car door opening for boarding to car stop and passenger de-boarding at the passenger-selected destination and includes destination selection by the passenger using a touch screen route map display upon entering the car. This video also shows passenger en-route options to change destinations at any time. All cars are fully climate controlled using power supplied to the cars from the SuperWay.

Door Clearance — MicroWay

This short video shows the passenger door clearance for boarding and de-boarding for even tall passengers on the Roam MicroWay Personal Rapid Transit (PRT)  vehicle.

Emergency Escape — MicroWay

Roam MicroWay Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) (and all other Roam systems) provide passengers with a rapid means of unassisted escape from cars via patented, passenger activated end door/ramp to a patented center mesh emergency walkway in the event of any emergency stop either from fire aboard a car or any other emergency stop such as from some vehicle failure or power failure. This video depicts passenger use of the emergency door/ramp and center escape walkway.

 Spacious Seating — MicroWay

SuperWay is a revolutionary, multi-use, elevated duo-rail transportation system for automated local or long distance transport of personal automobiles, public transit vehicles, and cargo.

Entrance Ramp Animation   

Conventional automobiles easily enter the SuperWay system from ordinary streets and access roads by way of weather-protected entry ramps. After passing through an automated identification and car configuration check lane, an entry gate opens to allow cars to drive up the ramps to the SuperWay entry point. Cars then drive down a short down ramp to the bed of a waiting car ferry. When the car front wheels contact stops on the ferry bed, the ferry accelerates and merges from the entry siding into the main line traffic at full speed.

Aerial View of Guideway

All vehicles (automobiles, public transit, and cargo containers) move at constant speed on open, elevated SuperWay guideways consisting of a pair of smooth, enclosed stainless-steel wheelways. Open space is provided between the rails to allow skylight to reach the ground and minimize visual blockage. The total cross-sectional area of the two wheelways is less than that of typical monorails. All vehicles move at constant, synchronous speed in computer generated and maintained, virtual train slots on the SuperWay. Entering vehicles are merged into open slots in the virtual train.

Exit Ramp Animation

Automobiles exit the main line by switching to an exit siding where they decelerate to a stop at the exit ramp in much the same manner as vehicles slow on freeway exit ramps. Cars then drive up a short ramp from the stopped car ferry and then drive down a weather-protected down ramp to the street or access road. Empty ferries pass under exit ramps and move to an entry ramp to await another car.
