Urban transportation needs are growing exponentially as more consumers shift into cities on a global basis, which is seeing new concepts like this suspended monorail be developed to offer potential solutions.

The conceptual monorail works by easily maneuvering through an urban landscape thanks to the dedicated track, while incorporated wind turbines work to capture energy during operation. This can then be used to power onboard components including essential electronics or comfort features for passengers like WiFi and power outlets for passengers.

The conceptual suspended monorail is the design work of Zbanca Andrei, Zbanca Ion and Martiniuc Victor, and could also be implemented with solar panels to make it even more efficient at capturing energy during daily operation.
