Washington: Israel`s Tel Aviv city is set to welcome levitating `sky trains` to tackle the problem of heavy traffic and environmental pollution.

According to the Fox News, the city would see Sky Tran`s futuristic transportation trains, a mass transit system of magnetically levitating pods which was co-developed by engineers from NASA`s Armes Research Center.

The report said that with SkyTran`s pods the city aims to have energy and environment-friendly alternatives to cars and buses.

The planners said that `sky trains` are a cheaper and faster transportation system and will help reduce congestion and pollution.

The city recently hired US consultant company Jenkins Gales and Martinez to help speed up the process in building the SkyTran track but no official timetable has been announced, the report added.
