GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A company is now being evaluated to implement their cutting-edge public transportation system in Greenville. 

Taxi 2000 said their proposed project would require only private funding and no tax dollars would be used in the implementation. 

The Skyweb Express by Taxi 2000 incorporates an automated fleet of personal electric vehicles that run on elevated guide ways. The size of the guide way is about the size of a bike path but maintains the same passenger capacity as the three lanes of vehicle traffic.

Taxi 2000 said the electric cars are as quiet as a golf cart. Service hours are not limited on the Skyweb Express.

Taxi 2000 said the Skyweb Express will offer an ecologically friendly footprint, non-stop transport, 24/7 automated operation, low operating and maintenance costs, community enhancement, and transit oriented economic development. 

Taxi 2000 said the Skyweb Express is safe and operates safely at 30 mph. for urban areas, but can reach 70 mph. 

The Skyweb Express works as a non-stop transportation system where passengers choose their destination without other stops in between. 

Taxi 2000 said the cars are handicap accessible and can fit five people. The cars can also fit bikes.

Taxi 2000 is asking for the public's input on if the Skyweb Express would be good for Greenville. Click here to complete the survey and to learn more about suggested routes.
