"It sounds like the future may have arrived," said Laura Stuchinsky, San Jose Dept. of Transportation.
Laura Stuchinsky is a sustainability officer for San Jose's Department of Transportation. She and other city officials are considering the idea of having such a public pod system link the Mineta San Jose International Airport with area businesses, hotels and other nearby transit options, like Caltrain, BART and the VTA Light Rail.
'One of the advantages of this automated transit network is that it offers a lot of flexibility. It's much less expensive than traditional transit. It doesn't serve the same needs as high-speed rail or BART. It's a complement to those systems,' said Stuchinsky."
