Answer by SCHILTEC

Justification is in the overall economic performance. Waverail’s high personnel costs are overcome by extraordinary savings in energy, capital and maintenance, giving it, especially in high volume application, a remarkable profitability. At low passenger numbers Waverail is worse than normal rail. There is a crossover point at around 800 passengers/h and after that Waverail becomes profitable while normal rail stays in the red. See the graphs in the Waverail Webpage
