Why is an Ultra pods system better than a bus or a train?

A bus or train is only available at a predetermined time and for a predetermined route; an Ultra pods system is available when you want it, providing a non-stop journey only to your chosen destination. However, the system is most effective when used in combination with existing forms of transport; Ultra pods are not better than a bus or train, but is designed to perform a different role. Rail or bus can provide long-distance links down existing corridors, while Ultra pods offer an efficient, local area network linkage.
