"However, not only new types of fuel but also a new design, are able to dramatically improve the energy efficiency of the vehicle. In this regard, the novelty of the Belorussian company "String technologies" merits attention. It is, in fact, a new form of transport, which can accelerate up to 500 km/h: a high-speed unibus, one of the new modules of the SkyWay transport. The company-developer SkyWay Technologies Co. (CJSC "String technologies") has created and brings to market the rail transport systems, based on the application of ultralight flyovers of special design. The first models of the SkyWay rolling stock: unibus and unibike, were presented at InnoTrans 2016. Since that time, the developers have leaped forward. This year, the company presents a completely new development – a high speed unibus, which is capable to achieve speed of up to 500 km per hour."
