The Ultra pod system at Heathrow
From business campuses to city centres, the Ultra pod system avoids obstructive development in built-up areas through highly flexible construction options that offer almost limitless application possibilities and make it ideal for retrofitting into urban environments.
The system complements existing forms of public transport by providing an on-demand and direct service over a localised area. Virtually silent, the system is also suitable for integration into residential estates.
The benefits of the system have been recognised by developers around the world and it is currently being proposed for the following environments:
- City centres
- College, university & corporate campuses
- Residential areas
See the applications page for examples.
