Redefining the Way We Move
Beltways is on a mission to accelerate humanity with a new and exciting form of mobility. Our fast & easy-to-deploy systems unlock new opportunities for human conveyance in locations inaccessible to conventional slow-moving walkways.
With the Beltways Transit Network, people can move quickly and conveniently around large urban areas such as airports, venues, universities, and downtowns.
Seamless Public Transportation
We believe an efficient public transportation system is the solution to many existential problems facing humanity, including hyper-urbanization, road deaths, traffic congestion, and climate change.
Our Journey So Far
THE EUREKA MOMENT
Growing up in Turkey, Edip Yuksel invents the modular and pit-less accelerating walkway during his freshman year at METU University while studying mechanical engineering.
However, after a series of unfortunate events and the assassination of his younger brother, he dropped out of university to become an outspoken critic of the Turkish authoritarian government.
His best-selling books led to his imprisonment for many years. When freed, Edip immigrated to the US, graduated from law school, married his life partner, and had two sons.
FOUNDED IN SILICON VALLEY
Edip's two sons, John Yuksel and Matine Yuksel, leave their lucrative careers in law and tech to bring their father's invention to life.
FIRST PROTOTYPE BUILT IN IOWA
The Yuksel brothers move to Iowa to build their alpha and beta prototypes at their engineer's workshop. The result was a world record setting high-speed modular accelerating walkway system that eventually gets the interest of venture firms in California.
BELTWAYS RELOCATES TO CINCINNATI
The Yuksel brothers relocate to Cincinnati, in partnership with a local engineering firm to commercialize Beltways for their first customer.
2023 & BEYOND
THE START OF A ONE YEAR COMMERCIALIZATION SPRINT
The Beltways engineering team grows to more than 10 people building an Accelerator for public demonstration.
