Khaleej Times: Sharjah is travelling into the future with skypods

[05.09.2022]

uSky Transport in partnership with the Sharjah Research, Technology and Innovation Park (SRTI Park), a vibrant incubation hub for new-age innovators, are developing hi-tech, hi-speed hanging skypods that can carry people and freight at speeds of between 150 kmph and 500 kmph.


uSky Transport has already constructed hanging test tracks that will be able to carry cargo and passengers. The testing of the uPods is being conducted on a 2.4 km stretch within the park. After successful testing, the government will announce construction of its routes within Sharjah city.


This will be the UAE’s first high-speed electric skypod network. The company has already built a 2.4 km suspended track that will allow pods hanging on a super-strong string rail to travel at high speeds once a full-length line is opened, CEO SRTIP's H.E. Hussain Al Mahmoudi writes for Khaleej Times.
