The future of public transport has finally arrived with Heathrow Airport officially unveiling laser-guided travel pods.
The design was a joint effort between Heathrow’s owners DAA and Manufacturer ULTra PRT to prove the technology could be reliable, efficient, and most importantly, can work around complex existing infrastructure. The 22 electric pod cars replaced two diesel-powered buses that made 216 trips every day. They’re a sound solution for the endless loops that airport transportation must make. Plus, they’re not nearly as expensive as a monorail.
