The proposed Las Vegas mobility network is built upon the well-defined JPods architecture. The system  will provide people with direct origin-to-destination travel between locations defined by the city of Las Vegas to be of interest in a first phase deployment. Specifically, from the Sahara Monorail to The Fremont Experience along Las Vegas Blvd, with additional shorter segments between there and Symphony Park and the North Outlet Mall. With the very small turning radius the system provides access to many locations with new stations being part of those locations andplaced in nearby but unobtrusive spots.

The system brings huge benefits to an area such as The Fremont Experience by reducing congestion from rental cars, taxis, and ride services such as Uber. In addition, it is an enabler, connecting other transit systems such as the Sahara Monorail, extending the reach of mass transit across the entire area. The JPods easily allow people to travel in small private groups. They are on-demand, so they eliminate waiting for pick ups.

    1. The Rider Experience
      1. Privacy And Security: 
        1. Each ride starts with a passenger or group of passengers entering a JPod. Only the people in your group travel together. In this way, each ride is private to that person, group,or family. Traveling non-stop from origin to destination eliminates energy wasting repetitive start-stops cars, trains, and buses. 
        2. COVID-19 spread rapidly through NYC with the queuing and transfers on subways amplifying the contagion as documented in an MIT study. A similar London Tube study documents how queuing and transfers amplies flu contagion by 6 times normal. JPods has the ability to reduce wait times and queuing to on-demand entry. Additionally between rides, using UCV technology, JPods can be disinfected instantly and quickly put back into work flow. 
        3. This also means the ride is secure. People enter at the origin and depart at the destination, with no other access points along the way. This eliminates the uncomfortable moments similar to when other people share an elevator.
        4. Rides are purchased at a Kiosk or online and can be purchased as a one-time, day pass, number of days, or monthly/annual subscription. To begin a ride, a person simply walks up to the stanchion at a station, enters their code or presents a QR Code on their smartphone and their ride begins. It is also possible that businesses will want to provide rides as part of a stay package, a dining package, or other event packages. These can be managed using a Promo Code or similar approach on the system’s web site.
      2. Infotainment
        1. The system provides a number of entertainment and information options (infotainment) to patrons. These include Advertising Upcoming Events, Music from smartphone Playlist, and free WiFi.
          1. Upcoming Events can include events of the day, week, or coming months ahead
          2. Music can be played from the patron’s smartphone using Bluetooth. This feature may be purchased and would provide revenue in place of advertising
          3. Free WiFi can be used while in transit
      3. Passenger Interactions
        1. The passenger interacts with the system in several ways.
          1. During travel, the system makes announcements about boarding, the destination, departure, time to destination, arrival, and deboarding
          2. If a passenger needs to change the destination on route, feels uncomfortable and wants to get off, or has any kind of emergency, they use the Emergency Call Button to connect with a System Operator. The System Operator will identify the best choice and route the passenger accordingly (e.i. nearest station with a bathroom, hospital, etc.)
