Circular passenger terminal station

Terminal stations of string transport systems will have a circular shape with a moving (rotating) platform or floor.

The diameter of the station is about 60 m. At high passenger flows (over 100 thousand passengers per day) the diameter of the station can be increased to 100 meters or more. Intermediate stations with significant passenger flow will have turnout switches and sheds, which will allow vehicles to pass on them regardless of their motion schedule on the route. Stations where the number of passengers is small are made in the form of open areas (platforms) on the track. Boarding (disembarkation) of passengers on them is carried out by braking of single vehicles with a partial load.
