[Photos] cTrain Elevated Mass Transit Concept

15 photos

The C-train concept, developed by Jacob Innovations, is an automated mass transit mode of elevated light weight trains with seating room only. The design eliminates need for depots - via capability to travel on upper and lower wheels by switching vertically between tracks and be stored vertically above the tracks. Also elevated design is free from traffic and weather fluctuations (elevated above street level). The cTrain system can be built quickly and cheaply with exiting technologies.The cTrains are self-driven, noise-free, and pollution-free. They require very little energy; each train would need the energy of about 3 golf carts (four-seat golf carts). Because of the low cost (under $2 mil/mile) the cTrain can provide coverage for through all the suburbs where there is typically little or no mass transit.
