Pod taxis, a thought with which Indian states flirted for considerable length of time.
The National Highways Authority of India has laid the preparation to reveal India’s first personal rapid transit (PRT) organize and will welcome worldwide offers for the task inside of the following fortnight. The pilot venture will traverse a 13 km stretch from the Gurgaon-Delhi fringe to Badshapur Mod on Sohna Road and is assessed to cost Rs 850 crore.
A personal rapid transit (PRT) network is made up of small automated vehicles running at close intervals on a guide-way with docking stations for passengers to get on and off. While a pod can accommodate up to five people, there is also an option to hire an entire pod that will take a passenger straight to the destination, skipping the scheduled stops. The average speed of the pods is 60 kmph.
