Taking to the Skies

Do you ever get stuck in traffic? Do you ever think that there must be a way to skip it that doesn’t involve being stuck in traffic on a bus, with 60 strangers?

You’re not the only one. As cities look for creative ways to help people get around town, skypods, which are essentially private-public transit, are one idea that might have traction. The pods typically carry two or three people and can travel as fast as 150 mph (speedy!).

When you climb aboard, you enter your destination and the pod take care of the rest — moving you along lines of track hanging over roads or sidewalks until you get to where you’re going.

What do you think? Is this new transit technology the wave of the future? Vote in the poll to weigh in!

    It would be much faster to get to school. I personally think it could decrease the amount of fuel costs for the school buses and the maintenance.

    It would seem really cool to try to get to school in kind of like a flying pod, because it would reduce pollution and it would be an interesting experience to “fly” in the sky!

    I say yes! It’s important because some kids get In trouble because their late for school, this way they won’t though.

    I love this idea. In fact, I thought about the solar roadway project when I saw this video. Please go on google and look up “solar freaking roadways”. It is amazing, and I am trying to spread the word. Enjoy!

    yes, i think it’s a great idea! let’s just hope that there aren’t any glitches in the system! we wouldn’t want the device to fall on top of others cars and hurt others! otherwise, its a yes for me(:
