Presentation of a 60 passengers model (56 in business class and 4 in first class).
Some amenities have been added:
- luggage lockers
- tablet computers integrated on seats
- spaces for disabled people
- vending machines.
Market studies show that, on the first Montreal-Quebec City operating line, an influx of 10,000 to 15,000 passengers per day is realistic and remains largely below the monorail transport capacity. It’s also easy to add, into a regular MGV traffic circuit, specially adapted shuttles for shipping goods which will be used off-peak hours, particularly during night time.
The system is flexible, scalable, and can be just as effective at low speed. For example, in urban areas, MGV can serve suburbs at a speed that better suits distances between stations. Its rapid acceleration capability enables it to serve more stations in the same area while maintaining a high speed service. With a departure every minute, one 60 passengers shuttle system can transport on each line up to 45 000 passengers (in both directions) during the six peak-hours, morning and evening combined.
