uST Technology to Help Deal with Pendulum Migration
Pendulum migration is inseparably linked to transport accessibility problems in both small and large cities. The daily mass travel of people to and from work, study, and back increases the burden on the transportation industry during rush hours. With uST Solutions there are new opportunities to increase mobility and reduce travel time.
A quarter of life on the road
Metropolises and large urban agglomerations face transportation problems caused by the daily movement of the employed population to and from work or study. For example, statistically, every fourth able-bodied resident of the Moscow region is a commuter. Cities are the main attraction of passenger traffic, which maintains a growing load on the transport infrastructure, and people experience specific difficulties:
- Loss of time in hours-long traffic jams.
- Lack of convenient transfer hubs.
- Poor interconnection of urban and suburban public transport.
- Long or inconvenient routes that have to fit the existing development.
Private cars do not solve the problem: congestion, traffic accidents, lack of parking spaces, and increasing emissions negatively affect the transport and environmental conditions in large cities. The introduction of uST Technology can contribute to the development of transport infrastructure and optimization of passenger traffic.
Large city transport
uST Solutions can be adapted to the problems of large cities and, in particular, to the optimization of transport communication based on the scale of pendulum migration. It is easier to integrate a string rail overpass into the urban environment than to lay a subway line or build a highway. Even with the existing development it is possible to set up convenient routes along an optimal path and avoid large-scale road works.
- Regardless of the air temperature and weather conditions, uPods provide comfortable travels.
- The speed reaches 150 km/h and the capacity is 50,000 passengers per hour.
- The second-level routes eliminate congestion and accidents, which is a real problem in large cities.
The average capital and operating costs of uST Transport & Infrastructure Complexes are lower than those of conventional modes of transport.
The number of steel-wheeled electric cars on the line depends on passenger traffic. Traffic intervals can be reduced during peak hours and increased during the day to match the flow of people. This will help avoid the accumulation of passengers at interchange stations and ensure a quick arrival at the destination.
