Personal rapid transit (PRT), often referred to as podcar, is a public transport mode featuring small automated vehicles operating on a network of specially built guideways. Taxi 2000 Corporation based in Fridley, MN, U.S.A. is a leader in the development and commercialization of PRT and has created SkyWeb Express.
SkyWeb Express is an innovative personal rapid transit system (PRT) that automatically takes you to the destination station of your choice non-stop at 30 mph. The system operates 24 hours a day, 7days a week, 365 days a year. SkyWeb's individual cars are automated, very safe and run on an elevated track above roadways. The SkyWeb Express system is electric, which means it's very quiet and emission free.
SkyWeb Express is currently being evaluated for implementation in Greenville County, SC. Funding for the proposed project is from private sources. No tax dollars are dedicated toward project implementation. Taxi 2000 is seeking community input regarding system routing and potential ridership.
