It lasted for 5 years and accumulated a total investment of 5 billion yuan. “Cloud track” belongs to the rail transit of small and medium-sized transportation. The comprehensive advantage is very prominent: the cost is only 1/5 of the subway; the construction period is only 1/3 of the subway; the climbing ability is strong, the turning radius is small, and the terrain is very strong. Ability; low noise, can pass through urban buildings; bridges are transparent, independent road rights, good landscape, can adapt to urban ecological environment; flexible grouping, one-way capacity is 1-3 million people / hour; The top speed can reach 80km/h. “Cloud Track” can be widely used in traffic lines and encrypted lines in first- and second-tier cities, main traffic lines in third- and fourth-tier cities, and sightseeing lines in tourist attractions. At present, BYD has reached strategic cooperation with the cities of Yinchuan, Guang'an, Shenzhen, Shantou, Handan, Iloilo, Egypt and other countries on the "cloud track", and the development momentum is very rapid.
