Belt distance between facets of space-filling zonotopes

To every d-dimensional polytope P with centrally symmetric facets one can assign a “subway map” such that every line of this “subway” contains exactly the facets parallel to one of the ridges of P. The belt diameter of P is the maximum number of subway lines one needs to use to get from one facet to another. We prove that the belt diameter of a d-dimensional space-filling zonotope does not exceed ⌈log2(4/5)d⌉.
