Are 'Trackless Trains' in San Antonio's future?
SAN ANTONIO — Could 'Trackless Trains' or 'Trackless Rail' be part of San Antonio's future?
I talked with San Antonio City Councilman Rey Saldana about that recently.
He said the new high-tech concept out of China is being looked at as a possibility for the future of some major traffic corridors - which are still being identified around San Antonio right now.
The idea is something that basically looks like a train, but is on rubber wheels. And instead of a track or rail system, the cars run on 'dedicated' lanes, which are separate from regular traffic lanes.
Check out the interview and some video of the prototype now being tested in Hunan Province in China.
