Example JPods network in Key West
Simulation of travel using JPods Route-Time software at a typical speed of 43 mph. Roughly, assuming you can walk there, from the Red Cross you can walk-ride-walk to:
- Green in 5 minutes
- Blue in 10 minutes
- Yellow in 20 minutes

A 3-Minute summary of JPods
Walter Cronkite covered Tricia Nixon opening the first digital transportation network on Oct. 24, 1972. The Morgantown PRT network has since delivered 150 million oil-free passenger-miles with only two minor injuries. Injuries on roads are 11,200 per million (link).
Problem: moving two tons to move a person
Solution: strive to move just the person
Power: Self-disciplined to be energy self-reliant
The network illustrated is gathers about 200 megawatt-hours per day. This is far more than the energy required to power mobility on Key West. Currently Key West contributes to Climate Change by burning oil for transportation and electricity. Following are images of:
