Hoverlanes (traffic corridors, sky corridors) are routes through the skies of megacities or ecumenopolises that spacecraft or hover vehicles may use to move through the dense metropolis. These hovering lanes of traffic may zip between tall buildings and megastructures (or through them), may descend into vertical shafts that lead to a city’s sublevels, or may run through underground tunnels below the city.
When designing fictional hoverlanes, consider how they integrate into the layout of your fictional city. Like any transportation system, hoverlanes likely connect areas of high use (spaceports, government centers, office buildings, etc). If hover vehicles are a common mode of transportation in your fictional world, also consider how vehicle bays and landing pads are used in combination with hoverlanes.
Are your hover vehicles piloted by people or are they controled by AI?
