The Night City Area Rapid Transit (NCART) is a public corporation based in Night City. It provides magnetic levitation (maglev) rail services throughout the city's metropolitan area.

History[]

In 2020, NCART provided maglev rail service throughout the Greater Night City Area, including Heywood, Westbrook, North Oak, Pacifica, South Night City and Rancho Coronado. Although it is a public corporation, major funding is obtained from several corporate sources. As a mass transit system, NCART's record is quite good: in the period between 2019 and 2020, the corporation logged over a million travel miles with only eight major accidents, ten transit-related fatalities, and only eleven incidents of terrorist activities or other security breaches. Tickets are .25eb per station travelled.

Operating out of the substreet level of the Night City Transit Center, NCART trains stop an average of every 20 minutes at each of the 25 stations. Corporate-owned "suburban" trains also enter the Transit Center as well; connections can be made by entering through a corporate security gate and using your company-issued pass to gain access.[1]

By 2045, after the Fourth Corporate War, the NCART system was still active within the Rebuilding Urban Center, but several stations were now subject to flooding during high tides, prompting plans to reconstruct the subway as a monorail and expand to the new rebuilding suburban areas and districts.[2]

In 2068, NCART was bought out by Night Corp after an incident in which unknown attackers released poison gas in the subway stations across Night City, leading to prolonged riots and NCART's bankruptcy.[3]

By 2077, the transit corporation had become known for its fast travel, cheap and convenient availability, and also its easy accessibility, both throughout all of Night City as well as for the average citizen.[4]

Database Entry (2077)[]

NCART

NCART

NCART (Night City Area Rapid Transit) is the Night Corp-owned city public transportation system which includes both metro and streetcars. There are currently six lines connecting all the districts, although expansions to the network have been in the works for years. Each NCART station has its own unique atmosphere and - as its passengers note - unique fragrance. NCART can be dangerous at night and during rush hour, as the gangs, mercs and regular criminals of the city see the stations and tunnels as a natural extension of Night City's streets. On the other hand, they say you don't really know the city until you've taken a ride on the NCART.[5]

    • This line is the closest to matching the location of NCART's iconic appearance in the opening shot of the E3 2018 trailer, traveling east from Kabuki Roundabout or Megabuilding H11 and looking south towards Megabuilding H10.
    • A branch runs above the All Foods Factory, ending into a tunnel outside of Watson's eastern border.
    • Another not-quite-connected branch bears some non-operational freight cars.
Santo Domingo
Pacifica
  • A branch from Pacifica - Stadium, where Line B and C terminate, runs above the buildings northeast of Batty's Hotel, then turns north before ending unfinished, possibly heading towards the Glen South station.
  • A ground level closed station in Coastview due southwest of Pacifica - Stadium.
  • An unfinished station in Baptise Street, West Wind Estate.[6]
  • A proposed Line C station known as C-11 "Pacifica" which could be any of the above.[7]
