Dock N Ride Highway Monorail Transit


This idea of future mass transport is dockable monorail vehicle carrier train with underside compartments where electric cars in motion can attach and recharge. Increasing vehicles operational range while offering privacy and convenience of public transport with freedom to roam.

Underside of the carrier are compartments with hydraulic magnetic lift hooks. Equipped car with docking racks can latch on to any carrier transport while in motion via designated entry/ exit lane along highway. Automated computerized navigation ensures safe and smooth hookup.

Train can also transport passenger and cargos for inter city commute. Electric power are derived from side monorail supplemented from wind turbine and solar panels in the freeway's middle divider.
Green transport for the 21st century.
