The agency’s team has come up with a form of urban transport that can be in demand in the context of modern global trends and urbanism, informs Railway Supply magazine, citing Working People.

Route public transport has been developed for fast movement over long distances. The monorail is built into a multi-lane highway or road. Thus, it does not require the construction of special infrastructure such as stations, pile structures or underground tunnels.

The shuttle itself has a small capacity in terms of greater safety, including epidemiological safety and passenger comfort. The shuttle’s cockpit is divided by a power partition equipped with information displays and phone chargers.

It also acts as a barrier to prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria by airborne droplets. Considering that it is an unmanned vehicle with a programmable movement scenario, it is possible to add additional shuttles to the line without interruption in time. In this case, the passenger capacity of the shuttle will be compensated, since there will be no significant increase in the cost of servicing the network.
