SkyCab® provides less exhaust emission
SkyCab is a new "green" intelligent transportation system. SkyCab has no drivers (automatic) and no pollution. The SkyCab Project is working in a network with international relations together with several cities, R&D institutions and an industrial group. The aim of the SkyCab Project is to supplement buses, (local) trains and undergrounds with a convenient, non-polluting and cost effective new innovative form of public transport, a personalized rapid transit system.

A SkyCab vehicle runs on guide ways 4 to 5 meters above ground level in a comprehensive network and it can accommodate up to four passengers on each individual journey. The system operates day and night in any weather (even snow and ice). It has no timetable restrictions and transports the passengers to their selected station without intermediate stops.

SkyCab selected and nominated by OECD

SkyCab was selected by OECD as one of four Swedish eco-innovations – ”a prominent practise”

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, OECD, will implement a project on Green Growth & Eco-Innovation. The project has secured the signed cooperation of 20 countries. See www.oecd.org/sti/innovation/green. With regard to Sweden, OECD has selected four "prominent practices” regarding eco-innovation for further studies. One of these is SkyCab.

Dr. Åke Åredal, SkyCab CEO and President, was interviewed by the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth - Tillväxtverket (commissioned by OECD through the Swedish Ministry of Enterprise, Energy and Communication). The Swedish Agency has sent these responses from SkyCab to OECD in Paris for further consideration and action.

A final OECD document will be published early in 2012.

OECD is an international organization helping governments tackle the economic, social, and governance challenges of a globalised economy.
SkyCab is a Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) project with a unique concept. In 2006, SkyCab built and demonstrated the first test track in Sweden for PRT in Hofors (a full scale moving indoor prototype). SkyCab is a new sustainable way of travelling that uses independently directed automatic vehicles in urban areas.

A significant study, from among several commissioned, illustrates how Stockholm Airport City and the Arlanda region can be more precisely integrated with SkyCab supplementing travel between the Märsta rail station, Arlandastad, and the Arlanda airport with a system capacity of seven million passengers per year.
