Personal Maglev Transporters™


SkyTran Features

  • SkyTran vehicles are waiting for you whenever you need one.
  • A SkyTran vehicle takes you non-stop to your destination from 25 to 100 mph.
  • SkyTran is quiet and energy efficient.

How SkyTran Works

Vehicles exit the high speed guideway before slowing…

…then descend to the off line portal closest to your selected destination

Traffic NEVER slows down while ON the high speed guideway!

Non-stop travel


8 ft.Clearance

One lane of non-stop SkyTran guideway provides the same hourly capacity as a threelane freeway

SkyTran structures do not obstruct cars, pedestrian any surface traffic.


Key Technology

Propelled by standard electric Linear Synchronous Motors (LSM).


passive MagLev technology replaces wheels.

MagLev & LSM results in 200+ MPG energy efficiency

Only one moving part…Virtually No Maintenance.


On-site Assembly Uses 4 Basic Parts

  • Guideway
  • Vehicle
  • Portal
  • Poles

Designed for low cost and fast installation

Cost: <$10 Million per mile


SkyTran Is A Network

SkyTran takes you anywhere a car can go.


Scales Up To A Network

Crossing traffic at different levels prevents collisions.


Using SkyTran

Comfortable entry and exit


SkyTran disappears into the cityscape

Minimum visual impact compared to an equivalent capacity three lane highway or a lower capacity light rail

No expensive, destructive right-of-way acquisitions required, just easements on existing sidewalks

Nonstop Guideway

Parked vehicles waiting for you

Boarding portal


Comparison of 25 Mile Commute


Local Bus 10 MPH 150 minutes

Light Rail 15 MPH 100 minutes

Commuter Rail 30 MPH 45 minutes

Auto 40 MPH 37 minutes

SkyTran 100 MPH 15 minutes


No wait, non-stop, no hassle!
