DANAO City in northern Cebu may soon have a solar-powered suspended transportation system that resembles an automobile.
This comes after the Danao City Government and Transit X LLC transportation company signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on Monday, July 17, 2023, to build the country's first "revolutionary and futuristic" 24/7 podway mass transport network using solar electricity.
Danao City Mayor Thomas Mark Durano led the signing of MOU together with Vice Mayor Ramon “Nito” Durano, Danao City Investment and Promotions Center (DCIPC) officer-in-charge Red Durano and Transit X chief executive officer Dorothy Pinyoloya.
Transit X Founder and chief operating officer Michael David Stanley also took part in the signing virtually.
During the Danao City Investment Forum on July 8, the Transit X’s plan for a suspended transportation system was unveiled as one of the city's pipeline projects and was considered as a way to enhance mass transit that is environmentally sustainable.
Pinyoloya stated during the event that Transit X will make a $759 million initial investment for the manufacturing and installation of the city's podway.(EHP, TPT)
