Heathrow pod Personal Rapid Transit System

heathrow pod.jpgDriving home from the airport around the Heathrow perimeter road, I caught sight of these little pods ferrying people around the Terminal 5 long-stay carparks.

 

As a London resident, I don’t have much call to frequent the long-stay carparks, which is a pity because these four-seater pods look like an ideal alternative to the dreary carpark shuttle buses.

 

Powered by battery, the Personal Rapid Transit System pods travel at 40 km/hour, are automated and travel on demand.

 

This BBC Click video definitely makes me want to take the car to the airport for the next trip.
