We can dream, can’t we? SMT Rail is a Silicon Valley-based company with a proposal to solve mass transit problems in cities around the world. The idea is rather simple: Put the vehicles above street traffic. And the proposal isn’t to raise the system aboveground in certain locations, as BART does with elevated rails in the southern part of San Francisco. Nay, SMT wants the whole damn thing up above our heads.
Watch the demo above (apologies in advance about the soundtrack?) or visit SMT Rail’s website for more details. And tell us: If Muni were to implement such a system (forgetting how much it would cost to build), how exactly would they screw it up?
