$15 to commute round trip?  The worst gas-guzzling SUV does considerably better.  At this price, it will flop.  I thought this was eco-friendly?  Why should I pay $7.50 per trip AND share with 2 other strangers?  Lay off the ammendment 64 rights SkyTran and get your head in the game.  Mass transit has to be affordable, or it doesn't work.  At a $250M 'bargain', you should be able to charge reasonable rates to ride.

The socialists LOVE their choochoos--even when they can't move any more than a couple dozen people an hour. Naturally, they'll figure a way of making us ALL pay for their boondoggle.

Mass transit, two at a time? You might have to wait in line for 3 hours, but you can smoke a bowl in the pod after the wait..

Work the word "Green Energy" into its title and Barry Soetoro will throw you billions whether or not it works...

I don't always choose to use the latest technology to go somewhere really, really fast, but when I do, I choose to go to.... uh....er.... Longmont.

Cool idea -- but they really need to build something like this along the I-70 corridor up to the mountains, with a special spot for people to store skis.
