Originally they required magnetic tracks that would levitate the cars but we expect to see redesigned skycars in the near-future that use a new system for tracked transportation. Yonge and St. Clair has always been a commercial hotspot hosting a slew of businesses and major companies.

Due to the incredible density of sky-scraping condos in Liberty Village, sights of the sun are extremely limited. Humans are rarely seen throughout the neighbourhood. The robots, however, have flocked to the area in high numbers. The lack of human presence allows the robots to freely ride their hover bikes around the neighbourhood, and the minimal amounts of sun greatly reduce the solar damage to their metal.

Toronto's Harbourfront area still hosts some of the city's biggest events, whether live performances or festivals. The older generation of superstitious robots stay clear of the area because of an old myth that electronics can be damaged by water. A few years from now, in 2203, the Harbourfront area will transform into an entrance for the underwater city of Oneca. The city expects to have a major upper-class human population and is known to be quite prejudice towards artificial intelligence.
