|Travel pods at London Heathrow T5|
These nifty and clever innovations are fully operating at London Heathrow Terminal 5 (the main BA terminal at the airport). They are small travel pods that carry a few people and whisk you from the car park to the terminal, and vice versa.
They run to the car park that is designed for people to leave cars at all day or for a few days, and replace buses. They not only mean that there is less traffic and pollution from buses (they estimate about 50000 trips a year!), but are clever individual pods that you take “on demand”, and so no waiting for a scheduled tram to arrive as at other airports.
These are clever, innovative and also a lot of fun.
