Trip Time Comparisons:-
The graphs and tables below show some trip time comparisons.
We acknowledge the use of the RACQ (Royal Automobile Club of Queensland)Trip Planner in the preparation of these
The following charts show the travel distances and estimated trip
times for driving between the localities shown taken from the RACQ web site www.racq.com.au.
Within the Gold Coast - 100 km/h
S.E. Queensland Travel - 200 km/h
Queensland Rural Travel - 200 km/h
Interstate Trip Time Comparisons:-
Following are comparisons of trip times between capital cities on the same basis as above but
also including flying. The MonoCab VRT rapid transit system is a viable interstate transport proposition for
both passengers and freight.
You could leave your home in Brisbane at 2:00 am and arrive in
Sydney in time for a breakfast meeting having slept the whole trip - no
overnight hotel and no luggage. When you have finished your meeting, you head for the MonoCab VRT rapid
transit station and catch the next car back to Brisbane. No more trying to guess how long the meeting will
last so that you can plan your return flight accordingly.
There are some 300 fights weekly each way between
Brisbane and Sydney and some 500 flights each way between Sydney and Melbourne (the fifth busiest air
corridor in the world). If only 30% of these passengers chose to travel on the MonoCab VRT rapid transit
system, there would be a car leaving at intervals of less than 30 minutes. Because of the length of the trip,
for economic reasons, these cars would generally only travel when they have 75%+ of a full compliment of passengers
rather than just a single passenger as would often be the case for travel within cities.
