The transit system on stations like Zurvick Highport is modelled on the subsurface maglev light rail systems found in large planetside cities. Tram cars are summoned by use of PDAs or public transit consoles. The city's transit controller calculates the most efficient route based on individual priority code, passenger load and destination, and dispatches a tram car to the station. Once the passengers board, the tram car travels through a series of dedicated maglev tunnels to the destination station.
Each tram car in the Zurvick High Port Transit System has a capacity of 12 passengers, with reasonably comfortable, though hardly luxurious, seating. A control pad is mounted on each seat arm and flanking the door, allowing access to route information, Traveller's Aid information, and DataWeb services. Tram cars are smooth rectangular boxes with little in the way of exterior ornamentation other than identification and destination markings. They do not have a "front" or "rear," travelling in either direction as reuquired. Each tram car is rated as a Class 3 short-duration emergency shelter with self-contained backup fusion generator, life support and emergency rations for 12 persons for 72 hours.
