Intercity Monorail

The Eagle Star

  • From two to 20 segments make up one monorail consist.

  • Each segment has 2 seats/26" aisle/2 seats and will carry 20 seated passengers in first class comfort. This gives a maximum monorail capacity of 380 passengers (one segment used as a baggage hold).

  • Eagle Star has one cabin-accessible baggage rack (closet) per segment, a baggage hold for checked baggage and large items, under-seat storage, overhead bins, and toilets.

  • The monorail is able to negotiate tight curves within acceptable passenger comfort levels (20% lateral acceleration) due to short wheel base and ability to bank the guideway and tilt the monorail vehicle.

  • A dual system (with two guideways, one in each direction) is projected to move up to 7,600 passengers per hour per direction, (pphpd) at three minute headways. Such a dual system is projected to have a capacity up to 1,900,000 passenger miles per hour per direction (pmphpd) capacity due to the high 250 MPH average operating speed that is possible. This assumes that stations are 50 miles apart and every monorail stops at every station for ten minutes.

  • A single system (with one guideway and passing locations) is projected to move up to 1,150 passengers per hour per direction (pphpd). Such a single system is projected to have a capacity up to 250,000 passenger miles per hour per direction (pmphpd)

Monorails are the most popular type of transit system and they usually attract twice as many votes as any other transit system when voters are given a choice.

The high-speed monorail system offers significant time and cost advantages over highway travel for distances greater than 150 miles, and over air travel for distances less than 600 miles. It has advantages over its intercity competition such as Maglev, heavy trains like the French TGV, and fast trains which can operate over existing freight corridors.

We invite you to e-mail Meneren principal, Bill Tolbert, if you would like to discuss an intercity system.

TransPort Ventures LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Meneren Corporation was competitively selected by the State of Colorado to design, construct, and operate a 170 mile high-speed monorail system that will connect DIA (Denver International Airport), stop in the center of the City of Denver, and proceed up the Rocky Mountain corridor to the ski areas (including Vail), and on to the Eagle County Airport.


 

MagLift Technology has been designated a "Maglev" technology by the US Department of Transportation.  However, unlike fully levitating Maglev systems, MagLift is substantially lighter, lower cost, and can stay within highway right-of-ways.
