Ultra station at Heathrow T5 Business Parking
Each Ultra bay can dispatch up to 100-120 vehicles per hour with little or no waiting time (average at Heathrow Pod is around 30 seconds), meaning small stations can handle large numbers of people.
Approved by disability groups, the stations always offer at least minimal shelter above the bays and may be located underground, overhead, or at ground level, both in- and outdoors.
