AEROMOVEL'S PARTICIPATION IN THE INTERNATIONAL QUEST FOR EFFECTIVE MOBILITY

This paper reviews selected issues which currently impact the urban transportation activity from Caracas to Tokyo. It suggests the merit for use of a new technology - Aeromovel. While no one technology provides all answers to all mobility needs, Aeromovel has qualities which many communities are seeking. With the existence of two operating routes, one in Brazil and one in Indonesia, and the active design and planning for additional Aeromovel locations, transportation leaders should have a growing interest in this pneumatic transit option for the near term. Aeromovel is an option with potential to reduce capital funding costs, raise service quality, and permit rapid installation when demand capacities are below 9,000 persons per direction per hour. With this demand level, the Aeromovel technology is termed as 'Aeromid".
