Is the system safe?

Safety is Ultra’s first priority; all aspects of the system’s design, construction and operation have been assessed by an independent group of experienced and knowledgeable industry professionals known as the Safety Verification Team. Throughout the system’s development, Ultra gained the appropriate regulatory approvals. The vehicles operate on an exclusive guideway using three levels of automatic control, and the network is monitored at all times by control room staff.
