TRANSPORT OF THE FUTURE
The UAE is a trailblazer of smart transport, with a wide range of solutions, from autonomous vehicles to high-speed hyperloops, in development. In 2025, Sharjah will launch the uSky elevated string rail transport system for cargo and passengers, with a testing facility already operational in the emirate. Developed by Unitsky String Technologies Inc. (UST), a Belarusian-based eco-friendly, safe and comfortable transport solutions specialist, uSky travels at speeds of up to 150 km/h, with a capacity for 50,000 passengers per hour. The Sharjah rail development is just the start, with UST planning to grow its portfolio to 10 projects by the end of 2022.
