"This is state-of-the-art transportation, and it would get so much buzz going." Sanders told the Detroit Free Press' Ron Dzwonkowski, which is precisely why SkyTran is looking to pilot the program in a major city like Detroit.
Top speed for each individual car is reportedly 150 mph, but can be adjusted depending on the comfort level of each passenger. Something so fast must consume lots of energy, right? Not according to Sanders, who plans for the system to collect solar energy that will power virtually the entire network.
This must sound too good to be true for some Detroit officials, as Sanders indicated he hasn't heard back from anyone after making contact last year. The SkyTran CEO told the Freep that Detroit would be a great place to be first -- they "could really show how this can revitalize a city."
