Krunchie's Cab


I propose a transport system to replace cars, buses, trains and airplanes, which is low-cost, easy to implement, and will provide:
  • Zero carbon emissions;
  • Low-cost, very fast, door-to-door, transport between any two spots on a network of routes, potentially world-wide and extending to all communities no matter how remote;
  • Automatic routing from start to destination without change of vehicle or mode of transport in between;
  • No unwanted stopping between the start-point of a journey and the destination (unlike buses which stop at multiple stops, trains which stop at intermediate stations and plane journeys which terminate at airports);
  • No dumping of passengers at Hubs: all are take n to their own doorstep or the doorstep of their desired destination;
  • No possibility of accidents or traffic jams;
  • And low-cost, speedy, implementation.


Krunchie's Cab is a form of Tube Transport: Capsules (“cab” for short) travel through tubes. Offline Stopping and Starting means that there are no intermediate stops in any journey, but continuous movement from start to destination. Hold-ups are completely eliminated. Tubes (pipes) are very cheap to lay, compared to roads or tracks and there are no intersecting streams of traffic. 

The main features are described in the links below.

Read all about it in the book Transport 21 Hundred available in paperback and on Kindle from Amazon.
