Technology has evolved in so many ways and we’re seeing that impact on transportation with ride-sharing services and the development of self-driving cars. As vehicles largely remain the same, some technologists believe it’s time to invest in another mode being called the personal rapid transport, a.k.a the Podcar.
Podcars are already in operation at a few places, including Morgantown, in the U.S. state of West Virginia and at London’s Heathrow airport. Unlike trains or monorails, Podcars are actually capable of doing the rail switching from within the car itself.
