Tomorrow Land: Tel Aviv to have ‘flying’ cars

ArtistImageOfSkyTranUber and Lyft may already be feeling out of date.

It’s not exactly how George Jetson got to work, but SkyTran, a California company, is going to make “flying” cars a reality in Tel Aviv, the BBC reports.

It will look more Disney’s Tomorrow Land than the Jetsons: Elevated magnetic tracks will be built about 20 feet above ground so that commuters can hop on a Personal Rapid Transit car and avoid rush-hour traffic. Sort of a flying taxi that you’d order with a smartphone app.

SkyTran hopes its pilot program at Israel Aerospace Industries will be up and running by next year and then expand.
