An elevated SkyWay transport system of an overpass type is a string rail track designed for the movement of special rail cars- unibuses. The design features and unique innovative solutions account for a range of advantages- high speed, safety, sustainability and cost effectiveness of the system.
An unprecedented level of transport, ecological and antiterrorist safety is ensured due to the absence of crossroads, pedestrian crossings and contra-flow lanes to eliminate head-on and side collisions of the rolling stock.
Moreover, a high-rise rail string track structure features a ten-fold safety margin and vandal resistance, whereas the rolling stock is equipped with an anti-derailment system. Jn contrast to any other transport system, the SkyWay transport complex is more resistant to natural disasters- earthquakes, landslides, downpour, floods and freshet- due to the absence of earth embankments and underlying soils prone to destruction,and the location of the transport above the ground.
The absence of harmful impact on people and the environment is mainly attributed to the use of electric motors and special material for the transport complex construction. A negative impact- exhaust
fumes, noise, vibration, electromagnetic and other emissions - are reduced by 15-20 times compared to automobile transport, and by 2-3 times compared to railway (tram) and monorail.
Advantages of skyway technology are based on experience and achievements of entire humanity in the sphere of road construction and vehicle creation. adopting the best what was created before us, learning from the mistakes of others, we are creating the safest, the most cost-efficient and reliable transport system of all that have ever existed.

Innovative character of skyway technology is due to an original and effective combination of widely known engineering and technological solutions. Each separate component of skyway transport system is not something unique – it is the character of component connection into the system that ensures its unprecedented design and operational features.
