When considering advanced transit systems it should be clear what capabilities have been proven today and what potential a system has towards the (long term) future. ATRA represents both: providing a platform for all who share its vision towards the future, while uniting corporate members with proven experience and applications in the industry.
|Current corporate members of ATRA|
|Tubenet Transit||Tubenet Transit is designed and developed by the Tubenet Transit Institute led by Dr Nanzheng Yung. The team aims to develop an advanced transportation system to solve worldwide traffic difficulties especially for megacities with high pollution density and achieve highly efficient, fast, comfortable and green travel.

|4Dialog||Sustainable, urban and transportation development using 4D internet gaming technology. Our passion is the belief that only a shared picture of what the future may look like can create a sustainable society. Our 4D models are used to facilitate efficient conversations between parties – everyone can see, experience, and influence the content of the imagined future. For us, a project is so much more than a temporary event in a city – it is the foundation to transform a whole society over time via a model that can be reused and refined as more local partners join. In other words, we are not only working to create longterm sustainable development of society – our own model is treated along the same principles – but also to create longterm values that are emphasized as the model develops.
