Our vision is to create a nationwide high-speed elevated and automated toll road. Hyperlink toll roads power and control electric cars and trucks as they travel. Urban stations are every 4 miles and vet vehicles entering the system for safe travel and also provide fast food and package delivery. The electric cars are dual-mode and are controlled in the elevated network, or driven manually or autonomously at street level. This transport system is for both passengers and freight for short or long-distance travel. A single-vehicle can provide door to door service in any weather as the toll-road has a roof covered by solar panels. The travel service is less costly than driving a personal car, and the toll is for the vehicle, not the passengers creating very high demand for the service.

Hyperlink Freedom Mass Transit toll roads provide high-speed transport of both goods and people will have a significant impact.

California has the highest Average Annual Daily Traffic (AADT) (461,000 vehicles) on CA-60 just east of Los Angeles. Other routes with crowded highways include I-75 in Atlanta (409,000), I-69 in Houston (341,300), and I-90 in Chicago (327,900). The 37ft wide elevated Hyperlink toll road can handle 900,000 vehicles per day.

SAMPLE TRIP
Grandparents living in Manhattan want to visit their grandchildren in Boston. They use a smartphone app to call for a car to pick them up at their home the next morning at 8:00 am. They also want the car to bring coffee, juice, and Danish rolls.
Comparison of Travel Time & Cost for Boston – NCY FMT vs. Other Modes (one-way travel)

Mode Time Cost (2 Persons)
Car 4 hrs, 50 min $124.70*
Train 4 hrs, 0 min $250.00
Flights 1 hr, 19 min** $170.00
HYPERLINK 1 hr, 46 min $108.44
* IRS business travel cost allowance
** Flight time only; door-to-door time about 4 hrs

It is doubtful this elderly couple would even make the trip using current travel options. However, with Hyperlink, they would be in Boston at the kids’ house before 10:00 am. and see the kids to bed at 8 pm. back home by 10 pm.
