Very low capital cost and very fast construction time frames makes a larger network affordable. This enables, for the first time, the opportunity to build fast, safe, high-speed, mass transit with greatly increased reach into and around more communities in a region. The greatly increased efficiencies of scale, accessibility, convenience and functionality increases ridership on the system. The presently over-reaching and underfunded bus routes can be reconfigured for lower costs and greater efficiency. Lower ridership links, and environmentally sensitive routes to specialty destinations like Vancouver to Whistler and local islands are now viable because of the low cost and unique methods of construction. The construction methods and footprint of the EAZEway system have a near-zero environmental impact. Operation is also zero-emission with silent vehicles capable of between 300-400 km/h estimated top speeds. The landscape on EAZEway routes can enhanced by the attractive structural design and gives the opportunity to remove many types of lamp posts, poles, overhead wires-cape etc. and incorporate them seamlessly into the EAZEway structures.

EAZEway Bypass Technologies™
Design of the routes, buildings and joint venture agreement are created with the participation of citizens, including community referenda. Community ownership and input to initial designs of major projects is a key to the success of any viable venture. We have adopted virtual prototyping as a proven method of reducing the risks associated with major projects. We can then reconfigure existing, proven, safe technologies and business models in novel, evolutionary ways. This enables a much larger, widespread system for moving people and commercial goods. Greater reach and accessibility to larger areas of a region created by the design and affordability of the EAZEway system enables dramatically increased ridership and reduced automobile traffic.The cost of constructing a transportation network of a large enough coverage to efficiently and profitably service a region has previously be unavailable and has been a major limitation with regional transportation models.

About
The "plug-and-play" EAZEway monorail provides to regional communities anywhere in the world with a potentially self-funding and revenue generating, transportation, communication, real-estate network. Some benefits of the EAZEway system are: very low cost or free public transitrevenues to the communitynew local jobsenvironmentally sound (during construction and operation)new real-estate infrastructurecitizen access to online data of all the resources in transitlocal environmental data tracked by the network
The Real-Estate Income Trust turns what traditionally is a tax burden, transit, into a revenue generating asset adding additional value to the community. The reach and coverage of the EAZEway network combined with existing transit systems creates enough rider-ship to justify commercial real-estate "on the line" in "hub-buildings" and smaller stations. By combining the high volume rider-ship and more convenient access to the hubs, the tenants and investors of the buildings enjoy highly valued locations. The Segregated Easement Income Trust is now viable due to the reach and coverage of the EAZEwaynetwork. Again, this makes the traditional tax burden, transit, into a revenue source for communities. Easement income created by leasing space on the support structures to fibre-optics, power, water, cellular and other commercial service industries. The revenue generated by easements helps fund the operation of the EAZEway network and also creates revenues for the communities that grant easements to the network. The network can move freight, day and night.The combination of low cost to build and operate with revenue generating real-estate and easements enables the EAZEway system to be a free public transit system accessible to a much greater number of people and generating multiple benefits to a region.The EAZEway network, business enterprise models, and I-BAT systems are key initiatives of EAZEway Bypass Technologies (EBT) for the empowerment and development of regional communities and their citizens. For a light-hearted, illustrative introduction to the EAZEway - an overhead bypass solution to congested transportation, energy and communications corridors.
EAZEway exploits ultralight materials, modern steels, weld-free technology, oil-well drilling and plug-and-play construction. Strength is intrinsic to the EAZEway track which is obtained by rolling flanges into a beam-and-channel cross section. Estimated specified build cost:@$10 million/km + build rate @5 days/km

B. LAYING THE EAZEWAY TRACK Laying the EAZEway track uses construction principles borrowed from WWII Bailey-bridge technology.  bailey bridges.pdf After the drill-collar towers are plugged into cased holes along the route to be bypassed, all other EAZEway elements, including the suspension cables, vertical hangers and the track itself can be assembled on site by hand. New EAZEway tracks are lifted into position by crane or placed on rollers on a bridge-laying vehicle suspended from existing track. The new track is secured under stringers hanging from cables suspended between drill-collar towers. Each 10m length of EAZEway monorail can be lifted by six people. The tracks are plugged together and secured by pins using a sledgehammer or nuts and bolts to be put in by hand. A major benefit of the EAZEway is that while the towers are located, erected and dismantled by the oil industry (Motto: "Anywhere, Anytime!", the EAZEway track itself can be laid by local labor with a few days training. EAZEway is designed so a crew of ten people can lay 1 km of track in 5 days, much more if their track-laying vehicle is automated. In Bosnia, British Royal Engineers built a 50-yard span Bailey bridge from 2m elements in 11 hours, that is a labour-intensive rate of construction of 1 mile in about 20 days.
EAZEway system design exploits ultralight materials, modern steels, weld-free technology, oil well drilling and plug-and-play construction. Speed, strength, flexibility and low cost is intrinsic to the EAZEway track design.
EAZEway Bypass Technologies: Proven technologies reconfigured for an affordable, effective, immediate transportation solution;
Speed, Simplicity, Affordability, Efficiency and Effectiveness are the design goals of EAZEway.
A.DRILLING AND CASING HOLES FOR PLUGGED IN EAZEWAY TOWERS The method for preparing cased holes and plugging in the towers to support a monorail, is borrowed from the international oil-well drilling industry. The EAZEway crew sets up the drilling rig and starts drilling operations at surveyed positions, spaced at intervals of about 50 to 100 yards along the median line of the highway to be bypassed. From the starterhole, the crew prepares the drill-collar towers following five basic steps: Place the drill bit and drill collars in the starter hole.Attach the kelly and turntable and begin drilling.As drilling progresses, circulate mud through the collars and out of the bit to float the rock cuttings out of the hole.Add new sections of drill collars until the pre-set depth (about 10m, depending on the rock strength) is reached.Run and cement casing -- placing casing-pipe sections into the hole (to prevent collapse) with spacers outside to keep casing centred in the holePlug the drill collars into the cased holes to form EAZEway tower supports

C. SUSPENSION, TRACKING, BRAKING AND DRIVE FOR THE EAZEWAY CARS: The EAZEway monorail provides a smooth, engineered and protected surface for engineers to create innovative car suspension, tracking, braking and drive systems. Proven aerospace and automobile technology supports safe, fast, economic transport but the basic EAZEway design is borrowed from the world's oldest suspended monorail, open 1901 and still operating in the Ruhr Valley, Germany. Construction began in 1898 for a suspended monorail to bypass traffic congestion crossing the Wupper River. The trains swing freely beneath the track but never bank more than 15 degrees. Cars operate at approximately two and a half minute headway with a carrying capacity of 3,500 passengers per hour. See Monorails.org
Preparing an EAZEway Bypass Joint-Venture Finance Agreement: Subject to a joint-venture finance agreement, EAZEway Bypass Technologies (EBT) will provide unit holders in project-based EAZEway Bypass Income Trusts (EBIT) with licenses to EAZEway intellectual property, general marketing tools and business models (Property) to build and operate EAZEway Bypass networks.The joint-venture finance agreement defines the project risks, rewards and responsibilities and the proportions shared amongst the income trust unit holders which must include governments-with-jurisdiction for the easements and rights of way needed by the EAZEway bypass in contiguous geographical areas in a single watershed, together with the joint-venture partners approved by those governments and their life-cycle service providers. The joint-venture partners must agree to extend and protect the Property as described on http://www.EAZEway.org  The partners agree to develop business applications from the Property for use in the public interest, including but not limited to HARDWARE APPLICATIONS to enable wide area transit; to reduce congestion; to improve public security; to protect regional ecosystems, and, to support interstate transport, AND, SOFTWARE APPLICATIONS for virtual bypassing, virtual prototyping and independent-benchmark asset tracking, AND, A COMMON VISION to promote creative, critical and clear thinking for global solutions. Implementing an EAZEway Bypass Joint-Venture Project in Ten PhasesIdentify a target EAZEway bypass project jurisdiction, invite prospective partners and prepare an initial joint-venture financial agreement. The initial agreement commits the EAZEway Bypass Income Trusts (EBIT) partners to funding and implementing phases 1 through 4 below. The mandate of the initial joint venture is to produce community-approved route and hub bypass design, including specifications and business plans. On completion of phase 4, the initial partners will have options to convert their initial joint-venture financial agreement into a final agreement to finance, build, lease, own, operate and manage (BLOOM) the bypass to meet the community-approved bypass designs, specifications and business plans. Subject to the initial joint-venture finance agreement, the EBIT partners extend the Property by commissioning an Internet-based portfolio of route designs and business plans to define alternatives for bypass-route character, purpose and impact. The extended Property includes sketches, 2-D drawings, 3-D illustrations, animated graphics and virtual-bypass route prototyping, including impact simulation on existing corridor traffic and congestion. Subject to the initial joint-venture finance agreement, the EBIT partners extend the Property by commissioning an Internet-based portfolio of hub designs and business plans to define alternative-bypass hub character, purpose and impact. Property extensions include sketches, 2-D drawings, 3-D illustrations, animated graphics, virtual-bypass hub prototyping and impact simulation on local community. Subject to the initial joint-venture finance agreement, the EBIT partners conduct community 'beauty contests' and referenda to select the preferred bypass route and hub designs from the portfolio, including a selected bypass character, purpose, specifications and business plans. Subject to the initial joint-venture finance agreement, the EBIT partners exercise or sell their options to participate in the final stages of the bypass project and implement the selected route and hub design, including bypass character, purpose, specifications and business plans. Subject to the final joint-venture finance agreement, the EBIT partners equip impacted communities with I-BAT (internet based asset tracking) units to track the movement of public assets through the bypass project giving citizens online access to all the project data and ensure the public interest is paramount. Subject to the final joint-venture finance agreement, the EBIT partners maximize local participation by training and employing local people or contracting with local businesses for the task-talent-time assets needed to implement bypass projects, including complying with government legislation, adding value to regional industries and developing adaptive strategies for economic renewal, public security and environmental protection in the regional community. Subject to the final joint-venture finance agreement, the EBIT partners finance bypass route network and distribute income generated by the network through SEITs (Segregated Easement Income Trusts). Subject to the final joint-venture finance agreement, the EBIT partners finance bypass hubs and distribute income generated by the hubs through REITs (Real-Estate Income Trusts). Subject to the final joint-venture finance agreement, the EBIT partners participate in some combination of building, leasing, owning, operating or managing the EAZEway bypass routes and hubs.

EAZEWAY BYPASS SOFTWARE
B. COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS (CFD) DESIGN TOOLS TO OPTIMIZE VEHICLE COOLING, HEATING AND POWER-TRAIN PERFORMANCEEAZEway Bypass partners will use CFD design software to optimize the energy efficiency of the suspension and power systems in various bypass vehicles. For example, if the EAZEway partners decide to use an air-cushion suspension system for the bypass vehicles, then proven CFD software can be used to design and develop 'hovercraft-type' skirts and control the stability of air flow discharged from the vehicle at high speed.In another example, if a decision is made to use electrically-powered bypass vehicles, then state-of-the-art CFD software can be used to develop internally-cooled power inverters--the modules that convert the DC power supplied by batteries into AC power to drive motors or, in reverse, convert the AC power generated by motors during braking into DC power to recharge the batteries.The proven benefits of CFD simulations, include comfortable ride, reliable power trains, integrated heat exchanger, minimized piece-part count, improved thermal performance, reduced overall system cost and accelerated innovation to market.More generally, CFD software supports a rapid-prototyping process to generate and test different design concepts and ensure the design parameters meet the EAZEway specifications.

To achieve a specified build cost ($10 million/km) and build rate (5 days/km), EAZEway Bypass Technologies (EBT) uses project partners' proven software to test various virtual-bypass models and select the best route for a target corridor. Virtual-modelling software is a suite of computer-based decision-support tools that dramatically reduce the time and money needed for a community to identify its target corridors and commission or de-commission an appropriate bypass. The virtual-modelling process links computer-based design, engineering and manufacture (CAD, CAE and CAM) tools with computer-based simulations of employment, economic and environmental impacts for the proposed bypass. This virtual-modelling process accelerates the design and development of a common vision for all stakeholders, including citizens, legislators, planners, users and investors. Virtual modelling creates a visual simulation of the real world allowing for photo-realistic rendering, tele-presence, remote control, intuitive information queries and direct sensor input. EAZEway Bypass Technologies is proposing a joint venture with businesses worldwide and visionary government leaders to finance, build and equip a Virtual Reality "VVR" centre for the applied design and development of EAZEway monorail and hub networks in Vancouver and the subsequent EAZEway deployments around the world. Building on the experience of a similar facility at the University of Alberta, we will incorporate proven virtual-reality algorithms as used in the "Deductive Computing Machine". These algorithms improve the realism of digital models, fuse sensor data in a form that allows intuitive understanding of objects modelled and exploit state-of-the-art networking technologies, including..

A. COMPUTER-BASED DESIGN, ENGINEERING AND MANUFACTURE (CAD, CAE AND CAM) SIMULATION TOOLS The EAZEway bypass design is currently specified as an upgraded version of the world's oldest suspended monorail, opened 1901 in Germany's Ruhr Valley to bypass bridge traffic congestion over the Wupper River. Still operating, the trains run at 2 1/2 minute headway and carry up to 3,500 passengers per hour in cars swinging freely beneath the track but never banking more than 15 degrees. The EAZEway partners will use off-the-shelf CAD, CAE and CAM software for finite-element analysis of stress in the upgraded track and a kinematic analysis of vehicle motion. CAD/CAE/CAM software will help to optimize track parameters and the comfort, security and energy efficiency of the various bypass vehicles. The EAZEway monorail will offer a smooth, engineered, protected surface for upgraded car suspension, tracking, braking and high-speed propulsion systems.

C. SIMULATING HYBRID-FUEL, ENERGY AND VEHICLE FLOWS IN AN INTEGRATED RESOURCE-DISTRIBUTION NETWORK As bypass technologies evolve, a hybrid-fuel distribution system for low-emission EAZEway networks, must be integrated with more-traditional transport corridors carrying vehicles that need frequent stops at local, fossil-fuel, gas stations. CFD and resource-distribution simulation software will integrate the complex fuel and traffic needs of a traditional corridor and its EAZEway bypass. For example, the simulation software will support freeway, transit and municipal modelling in both Canada and USA and develop 3D models for analysis of complex multi-modal hubs, including transit, airport, rail and ferry links. Such an integrated analysis will optimize the balanced use of conventional and zero-emission fuels such as compressed air, distributed on the EAZEway monorail system. MDI - Zero Pollution Compressed Air engines Municipal Microsimulation Modelling Technology
D. COMPUTER-BASED SIMULATION OF PASSENGER VIEWS AND RIDES The final simulation of a proposed EAZEway bypass, will allow passengers to experience views and rides from a position inside a simulator 'programmed' to fly along the track or hover over the bypass and its hub buildings like a bird. EAZEway prospective passengers can experience the thrill of full flight simulations and even train for in-flight emergencies without ever leaving the ground using the kinds of simulators or cabin trainers operated by Boeing for its jet airliners. EAZEway users will "fly the box" as pilots, or sit in a "cabin trainer" as passengers, and enjoy views of (or from), the bypass without ever leaving the ground. EAZEway Bypass Technologies will integrate its partners' simulation software to show users how pilots handle in-flight incidents; everything from instrument failures right through to engine fires and failures of multiple systems and how flight attendants will handle cabin fires, passenger evacuations and the like. 3D CAD CAM Visualization Article - Vis_full.pdf Flight Simulator Article - ontbus.pdf

Implementing an EAZEway Bypass Joint-Venture Project in Ten PhasesIdentify a target EAZEway bypass project jurisdiction, invite prospective partners and prepare an initial joint-venture financial agreement. The initial agreement commits the EAZEway Bypass Income Trusts (EBIT) partners to funding and implementing phases 1 through 4 below. The mandate of the initial joint venture is to produce community-approved route and hub bypass design, including specifications and business plans. On completion of phase 4, the initial partners will have options to convert their initial joint-venture financial agreement into a final agreement to finance, build, lease, own, operate and manage (BLOOM) the bypass to meet the community-approved bypass designs, specifications and business plans. Subject to the initial joint-venture finance agreement, the EBIT partners extend the Property by commissioning an Internet-based portfolio of route designs and business plans to define alternatives for bypass-route character, purpose and impact. The extended Property includes sketches, 2-D drawings, 3-D illustrations, animated graphics and virtual-bypass route prototyping, including impact simulation on existing corridor traffic and congestion. Subject to the initial joint-venture finance agreement, the EBIT partners extend the Property by commissioning an Internet-based portfolio of hub designs and business plans to define alternative-bypass hub character, purpose and impact. Property extensions include sketches, 2-D drawings, 3-D illustrations, animated graphics, virtual-bypass hub prototyping and impact simulation on local community. Subject to the initial joint-venture finance agreement, the EBIT partners conduct community 'beauty contests' and referenda to select the preferred bypass route and hub designs from the portfolio, including a selected bypass character, purpose, specifications and business plans. Subject to the initial joint-venture finance agreement, the EBIT partners exercise or sell their options to participate in the final stages of the bypass project and implement the selected route and hub design, including bypass character, purpose, specifications and business plans. Subject to the final joint-venture finance agreement, the EBIT partners equip impacted communities with I-BAT (internet based asset tracking) units to track the movement of public assets through the bypass project giving citizens online access to all the project data and ensure the public interest is paramount. Subject to the final joint-venture finance agreement, the EBIT partners maximize local participation by training and employing local people or contracting with local businesses for the task-talent-time assets needed to implement bypass projects, including complying with government legislation, adding value to regional industries and developing adaptive strategies for economic renewal, public security and environmental protection in the regional community. Subject to the final joint-venture finance agreement, the EBIT partners finance bypass route network and distribute income generated by the network through SEITs (Segregated Easement Income Trusts). Subject to the final joint-venture finance agreement, the EBIT partners finance bypass hubs and distribute income generated by the hubs through REITs (Real-Estate Income Trusts). Subject to the final joint-venture finance agreement, the EBIT partners participate in some combination of building, leasing, owning, operating or managing the EAZEway bypass routes and hubs.
