This is the Metro Shuttle. It is a hybrid vehicle - It is a shuttle craft and a train. It is used to transport personnel around the USS Autonomous. A starship that big needs a some kind of transit system like this and the turbolifts will not make the cut. The Metro Shuttle is capable of leaving the ship and can also be shared with other ships and stations, which also use this transit system, but this a relatively new system, so most ships and stations don't have this system. The Metro Shuttle is also capable of traveling at warp speeds.
About this creation
Far view from one of the ends.
This shows that the Metro Shuttle hovers above the "rails." Also Each end is equipped with head lights and tail lights while traveling on the ship. Each is also equipped with nacelles for interstellar travel, although that is not used very often. The nacelles double as hovering thrusters, which keeps the Metro Shuttle hovering above the yellow rails.
A Metro Shuttle can be up to three cars long.
This is a view of a Metro Station.
Docking clamps come down when a Metro Shuttle is ready for boarding passengers.
A docking claps in the up position.
Some benches where people can sit while they wait for a Metro Shuttle to arrive.
A computer terminal. This where people would normally purchase tickets, but not in a society that has eliminated currency. This terminal is used to view schedules of Metro Shuttles and it can even display a map of current locations and display ETAs of when shuttles will arrive. Can also display which car has the most people in it.
Stairs leading to the upper and lower decks.
Each end of the station is equipped with turbolifts.
