Hybrid Transport System Hopes to Ease Travel Crowding

horizon mass transit system

With traffic on both the ground and in the air becoming more congested, alternate forms of transportation are vital. The Horizon System is a completely electrical plane/train hybrid that will hopefully alleviate the crowding at major hubs worldwide.

The Horizon System would include pods that would carry passengers to the aircraft while both are in motion. The entire ship would float along mag-lev rails, meaning it never touches the ground. The aircraft is also entirely remote controlled, which would make it the largest drone plane on earth.
