MINILOOP- An Elevated Bicycling Pathway Proposal for Southern California


MINILOOP

Richard Moreta and a team of architects and engineers around the world are developing the ideal zero-emission transportation systems for the cities of our future. MINILOOP is an elevated pipeline system that can include an enclosed cycleway for conventional and electric bicycles as well as an for electric vehicles or tramways for year round, all weather, zero-emissions travel.

To be the most efficient net-zero transportation system, the MINILOOP totes an effective combination of renewable energy technologies to power itself, as well as supply surplus power to the local city grid. These renewable energy platforms can also be customized to each MINLOOP location around the world depending on what renewable energy resources are readily available. Terminal points along the circuit also include electric vehicle charging stations and electric bicycle rentals, giving more ease to the EV users and more incentive to go electric.

MINILOOP is a platform that can be custom tailored to each city it becomes a part of, giving the world the opportunity to unite parts of our cities like never before. Even the structure of the MINILOOP itself can be adjusted to a more open air design and structure for cities with temperate climates, and more insulated, enclosed design for cities with more extreme weather.

MINILOOP helps create less traffic and pollution, by both taking more conventional motor vehicles off the road and giving more vertical space to grow plants to further filter the air. It also minimizes traffic and cycling incidents creating safer environments for families and commuters. We now have the opportunity to connect major nexus points of our dynamic cities such as schools and universities, business technology and industrial districts. Also giving more interconnectivity of parks and nature as well as agricultural hubs just a short trip out of city center. Each city brings a new unique twist to its MINILOOP systems for the region’s and city’s culture.

“We are very excited to bring this innovated masterpiece to life, as the people and cities of the world are hungry for novelty and sustainability in our daily commute. MINILOOP systems offer unprecedented opportunity to revolutionize how we travel in our day-to-day lives, while taking care of our community, city, and planet” says Kyle Hubert; partner of R A+D.

The long-term benefits of implementing the MINILOOP system also includes an opportunity for communities to create new or strengthen current active lifestyles. Creating interdependent routes for bicycles and other small electric vehicles can allow for greater peace of mind when people around the world begin moving towards more economic and ecological means of transportation. Students and families also receive greater peace of mind with their commute to school and occupations being much safer.

The more green public-transport and green-vehicles being created around the world, the higher the demand for charging stations and greater commute range. Could the MINILOOP stations’ charging lots be the infrastructural backbone meeting that demand? As this gives much more freedom, range, and commuting opportunity for existing and new EV owners whether or not they are using the MINILOOP transit system routes directly. Combined with other long distance transportation systems such as the Hyperloop, more communities around the world can begin lowering their carbon footprint, and raising their focus on the sustainability and wellbeing of the people and environment around them.
