This is how pod taxis run
The pod taxi operates in two modes, one on track and the other on hanging mode with the help of cables. But there are plans to run it on the track in India. There will be neither red signal nor jam on this track. Although the pod taxis operating abroad are 4 to 6 seater, but there are plans to run 8 to 10 seater taxis in India.
Pod taxis are fully computerized. It does not have a driver. It runs on battery. But starting a pod taxi is not an easy task. The cost of one kilometer of track to be built for pod taxis comes to around Rs 60 crore. Along with sitting in the taxi, with the help of touch screen, you have to write the name of the station where you want to get down. The taxi will stop on its own on arrival at the station. The rent has to be paid by card.
