|Billions of Regional Trips: Regional
travel is defined as a trip of between 100 and 1000 miles. Americans take
nearly 500 million regional trips each year. Most trips over 100 miles
(77%) are regional distance, not longer. Worldwide regional trips number
in the billions.
The Problems: Regional travel
is proportionally much slower than shorter or longer distances.
Professionals spend excessive travel time on regional trips using existing
transportation alternatives. We all must choose between less time at our
destination or more time away from home. Traditional personal airplanes
offer little benefit over cheaper transportation for a typical
regional trip. A better alternative is needed.
