FluxJet: Announced to the world in July 2022 in Toronto, Canada.
See first-hand a new breakthrough in Canada for ultra-high-speed ground
transportation to connect cities and address climate change.
Our vision is a world in which people, cities, and businesses are connected with affordable and sustainable ultra-high-speed transportation.
TransPod is building solutions to solve mankind’s biggest upcoming challenge. The way people move is not sustainable. As the population is demanding faster deliveries and faster transport, it is critical to develop new transportation systems capable of moving people fast and clean.
Transportation is responsible for more than a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions. With population growth and increasing per capita demand in developing countries, the IPCC has warned that this figure will increase at an even faster rate in the coming decades....
