Elevate Your Commute, Elevate Your Life

A single unit or multi-unit train straddling an elevated single track beam that supports, stabilizes and guides the carriage.
Featuring a panoramic view up in the air , the skyrail also provides a new way of travelling to effectively solve the dilemmas of traffic jam and serve as the last mile solution to connect the community, hospitals and schools.

why skyrail

Enlarged Windows, Broad Views

Windows take up most of the skyrail’s surface, providing passengers with excellent lighting and a different urban perspective.

Environmental Adaptability

The skyrail can serve as a city’s main line or as a connection between large transportation hubs within a city; as a connection between subway stations and final destinations; or even as tourist lines.

Optimized Land Occupation

The skyrail’s slender beamway and small-sized pillar structure greatly optimize the use of space. Tracks can even be set up through buildings or inside the shopping mall.

Low Noise, Comfortable Ride

The bogie with rubber tires and air springs greatly reduces vehicle body vibration and operating noise is far lower than conventional rail systems.

Low Cost

Moderate demand for construction volume, less demolition;
Only 1/5 of the cost of the subway;

Short Construction Period

Average construction period is 2 years,
 or 1/3 of what is needed for the subway;

In-Wheel Direct Drive

Electric motor axle directly driving the wheel, increasing efficiency;

Back-up Power

Equipped with BYD Proprietary Iron-Phosphate batteries in each carriage to allow the skyrail to drive safely to the next station.

Autonomous Driving

World leading automated control technology;

Lightweight Body

The all-aluminum skyrail body greatly reduces the energy consumption and tire wear.

Single Axle Bogie

The bogie is integrated to the train, lowering overall gravity and allowing extra room for passengers.

Regenerative Braking

The power recovered from the regenerative braking could be stored in the backup power or back to the grid which could help save the power.

In Wheel Drive Motor

Drive shaft connects directly to the traction wheel, increasing the efficiency

Permasyn motor features small volume, light weight, high efficiency and high power density

Low speed output provides large torque, high accuracy; low driving noise and easy maintenance

Flexible Marshalling

2-8 carriages can be put together to adjust to different transport capacity needs, significantly reducing operational costs.

Single Axle Bogie

The bogie is integrated to the train, lowering overall gravity and allowing extra room for passengers.

An adjustable secondary suspension system ensures increased vehicle comfort and stability for a better passenger experience;

Track wheel and horizontal wheels feature tire pressure monitoring system to ensure safety.

Lightweight Body

The all-aluminum skyrail body greatly reduces the energy consumption and tire wear.

High torsion, longer lifespan

Great views with wider visual area

Wide doors make boarding and alighting much safer and faster

Energy Regeneration System

The power recovered from the regenerative braking could be stored in the backup power or back to the grid which could help save the power.
