We will be available to present to your group Internationally to support your future tech and transit needs . SkyTran is more cost effective than bus and more reliable and faster than automated cars with traffic direction. It is less maintenance and more efficient considering scheduled routes times than BRT. Maglev pods that have reputable backing are the answer for reliable mass transit and happy commuters.
I was born and raised in Vancouver, I unfortunately, I don’t know any better city to invest. As great as Vancouver seems, we could still do much better for housing, for which the new cheap to ride/ build revenue generating maglev pod transit will achieve fast access to new areas of land. NASA and Elon Musk, call this part of the 5th Era. As city cores rebuild, outer perimeters will become more accessible and desirable with quick access to the core. This will stabilize cities dwindling middle class with a more robust workforce.
“The 20th C auto with its 600 million commuting cars has contributed 30% of greenhouse gases that fuel fear of runaway temperatures where maintenance is inconceivable. Regardless, this era is prompted by reliable quick commutes reducing living expenses and prompting investment in Metro Vancouver. The projected new GDP will helps relieve government long term social burdens. As well for stakeholders a new era of revenue generating transit, rather than current 20th C high maintenance transit. Maglev pods are an ideal P3 for city infrastructure review and long term efficiency.
The quandary created by of the previously valued $500 m of taxi licenses in Vancouver (Uber) has diminished value overnight. This can be reviewed with the investment from cab companies in skyTran pods. This will create an exemplary extended geographically service. Further this will make electric taxi investment viable with taxi pick up of "clients” at either or both stations enroute.
The hopeful site for climate change is c40.org. It can infuse all the intelligence for all cities sustainability. The world needs an aware proactive city to set this sustainable profitable transit tech, starting as just part of the transit mix. Vancouver is well positioned to adopt a skyTran showcase that can be promptly built. This would show the revenue capabilities & benefits of frictionless transit and magnetic flight, as important as the Wright Brothers. Currently, (July 2016) a test track is being built, with a worldwide announcement due in September. Ultimately like Paris expensive underground, maglev above ground is cheap enough to build as a grid for smarter higher capacities and revenues.
Like the car, maglev transit will change cities, but this time for smart density and well planned parkland. With less stress there will be less auto fatalities, gridlock and equity drains that undermine pats of societies.
Tramwaypods seek to use social media and “World Café “events for consensus for a groundswell of citizens to demand access to reasonable housing, taxes and jobs. Our governments will benefit from new industry, employment, infrastructure revenues, diversified immigration, more civic efficiency and a healthier lifestyle.
Tramwaypods is available to coordinate stakeholders for manufacture of pods, poles and trams.
I have studied Geography and Political Science grad with extensive experience in elections management. I have travelled the world and appreciate that democracy is the best we can do in terms of making life better for citizens. Having seen dictatorships first hand, the art of public conversation is where democracy excels and wins every time.
World Cafes and their cousins are a great tool in that kit and through them we can make our desires and opinions known to those we elect. Metro Vancouver is hemmed in by a border, mountains and ocean and so we must be mothers of invention to the density challenge at our doorstep. Otherwise democracy may wither and fail in a form we cannot predict.
My goal is to help shape our hopes in these forums and make the process valid and vital for all who participate. As a past board member and longtime member of the non-profit BC Humanist Association, I know the politics of communicating well and making a voice heard. Ideas are the engine; World Café’s are the fuel.BILINGUAL EXECUTIVE with EXTENSIVE INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE EDUCATION:
