iF concept design award 2010

Designed to solve problems common to public transportation in large cities, the Overhead Public Transportation System creates a new dynamics in transportation. The difference here is the simplicity in installation and maintenance and its sustainability. The rails are suspended by carbon steel towers and rails in both transportation directions are part of a single structure allowing for faster implementation. They are also placed vertically so the rail cars are supported by their sides. The system uses electro-magnetic drives and uses clean energy. The rail cars are narrower and lighter.
