Skybus is a standard gauge metro railway- using 12t/14t axel load driving bogies to carry 400 persons per 18.5m long, 3.25m wide coach, divided into two 9.5m bus modules with connecting door. Can have 20m radius of turning, and vertical lift, so no built up property need to be destroyed as well as by design can never escape from rail tracks nor capsize- very unique improvement of railway!
Capcity scalable as in metro from 20,000 to 80,000 peak passenger seats per hour per direction!
Capcity to carry commuters per hour is influenced by:
Why the same railway technology used in Skybus should not produce the above results based on the same proven principles, has to be rationally answered-in metro it works but not in Skybus- is a matter of irationality. Conventional railway cannot produce the case of carrying 1200 within 60m long as well as shift train unit by lateral shift of 5m, and time required to cover self-length shortened , including braking distance- as in case of Skybus train!
Even if one says, headway of only 90 sec is possible, still, Skybus can provide adequate capacity of more than 60,000 peak capacity per hour per direction!
Please do not think of comparing with rubber-tyred traction systems- like mono-rail or BRTS- they are not railway systems! Skybus has regular railway track, and is a case of steel wheel running on the steel rail- in fact exactly the same system used in high speed metros!
