World transport consists of a wide range of vehicular carriers, from individual four-seat liquid nitrogen air-cushion vehicles to thousand-seat salt-cycle rockets. Public transport includes, in some places, ancient maglev tunnel transports along the old rails laid down in the early part of the 21st century and small feeder-line ground-effect buses ranging in capacity from ten to two hundred seats. These vehicles also use liquid nitrogen technology. LN vehicles can achieve altitudes of up to fifty feet, depending on terrain, and have minimal impact on the biosphere, since the only effluent is gaseous nitrogen. At times frosting effects can be observed on vegetation, though this is rare. Inside warrens, transport is by individual electric transports, which hug the walls at various levels. All such transport is under the control of the Local Node.
