STS TransGlide 2000™

The TransGlide 2000™ Bicycle Transit System is a new strategy in bicycle transportation for which there are allowed U.S. patents and the right to file foreign patent applications has been preserved. This technology increases the efficiency of the bicycle by providing an environment within which bicyclist can ride comfortable at average speeds of 25miles [40km] per hour, making the bicycle a faster, safer, less expensive, and more convenient mode of transportation in urban areas. The TransGlide 2000™ Bicycle Transit System is an interstate highway style transportation corridor that is only 25 feet [7.62 m] wide with a 13 foot [3.96 m] tall center sloping to 10 foot [3.04 m]  high side walls. Running through the center of the System is a dividing wall with twelve-foot [3.65 m] wide traffic lanes on each side to accommodate bicycle traffic moving in opposite directions. What is not apparent from the small size and simple design of the TransGlide 2000™ Bicycle Transit System is its capacity to move people and freight faster in urban areas than any other available transit system. The key is that air is moved through the System in the same direction as the bicyclists are riding.

The air movement removes the greatest resistance which bicyclists must overcome when riding which is moving the body and the bicycle through the gases in the atmosphere. Atmospheric resistance increases exponentially faster than the rate of speed. Air resistance comprises 90% of the force resisting motion at bicycle speeds greater than 20 miles [33.86 km] per  hour. Removing this resistance makes bicycle riding much less strenuous so that average speeds will naturally increase. Bicyclists will be able to ride 10 km inside the TransGlide 2000™ Bicycle Transit System for the same amount of energy they would use to ride 1 km outside the System. The major breakthrough is that Bicycle Transportation Systems, Inc. has taken the most efficient form of transportation known and increased its efficiency by 90%.

With cycling 90% more efficient inside the TransGlide 2000™ Bicycle Transit System people will ride bicycles farther and faster while avoiding surface conflicts which slow cycling speeds and increase trip times. Through using one mode of transportation from trip origination to final destination travel efficiency will be enhanced, as time consuming mode changes will be eliminated. The cycling environment inside the System will be made more comfortable by cooling, heating and filtering the air as needed. Physical plants using fans powered by 150 hp electric motors will provide air movement and may be located above, below or along side the System with the air being introduced through ducts.
