Can Pod Cars Transform Traffic in Delhi?

Delhi is considering installing "pod cars," known in the U.S. as personal rapid transit or PRT, as a form of public transportation.

Itir Sonuparlak of The City Fix has the details on a report prepared by Delhi Integrated Multi Modal Transit System Ltd. (DIMTS) for options on preparing a green transit system for the city:

"The pod car system, also known as personal rapid transit (PRT), is a public transportation mode featuring small automated vehicles operating on a network of specially-built tracks. 'In a pod car system, vehicles are sized for individual or small group travel, typically carrying no more than six passengers per vehicle,' the report explains.

Is this the future of mass transit in Indian cities?"
