The Herman Trend Alert

April 10, 2019

Flying Solar Pods

Imagine public transit that is green and car-free? A privately funded system that can transform cities and metropolitan areas to be green will soon be coming to a city near you. Transit XTM is microtransit that can replace cars, buses, trains, trucks, ferries, and even short flights with the convenience, capacity, and lower cost of flying solar pods.

Eliminates congestion

Transportation throughout the world is a mess. The sad state of roads around the globe mean that commutes are long and stressful. Roads and traditional systems of public transportation are costly to build and maintain. Vehicles with combustion engines pollute and emit greenhouse gases, and millions of accidents and deaths occur every year on our roads.

Green and economical

As you might expect, the flying solar pods are powered by 100 percent renewable solar energy that is carbon-free and generates zero pollution. These aerial capsules are over 10 times more efficient than electric vehicles and will cost fares that are similar to existing public transportation.

Fast and safe

Featuring nonstop door-to-door travel at 45 mph (72 km/h) along main roads and 242 km/h (150 mph) along highways or railways, the pods fly from place to place. And compared to roadways, the Transit X system is 100,000 times safer. In fact, their safety record is similar to commercial airlines or existing 100 percent automated, grade-separated transit (Level 6 Autonomy).

How Transit X does it

Low capital and operational costs allow Transit X to offer privately-financed projects with no government subsidies.

Expected to be operational in 2020

Transit X's first pilot projects will break ground in 2019 and begin operations in 2020. Installation is fast and not disruptive to neighborhoods. Their first public demonstration took place in Leominster, Massachusetts, USA in October 2018.

Civic leaders, take note. . .

Privately-funded Transit X solves finance issues and provides non-stop, zero wait, 24x7, resilient, all-weather service that is quiet, attractive, and safe. It addresses many issues without government funding and has lower risk than other options. Expect this system to be the first of many disruptive technologies that appear on the transportation scene to help us replace polluting private vehicles with pollution-free public systems.
