Abstract Evacuated Tube Transport Technologies(ET3) offers the potential for more than an order of magnitude improvement in transportation efficiency,speed,cost,and effectiveness.An ET3 network may be optimized to sustainably displace most global transportation by car,ship,truck,train,and jet aircraft.To do this,ET3 standards should adhere to certain key principals:maximum value through efficiency,reliability,and simplicity;equal consideration for passenger and cargo loads;optimum size;high speed/high frequency operation;demand oriented;random accessibility;scalability;high granularity;automated control;full speed passive switching;open standards of implementation;and maximum use of existing capacities,materials,and processes.
