T5 Business Car Park passengers today joined in confidence trials of the Heathrow pod.
The trial, due to last three weeks, will encourage travellers to get on board and let BAA and Ultra, the pod’s creators and developers, know what they think of the system.
First day feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with passengers undertaking the five minute ride to/from the T5 Business Car Park to T5 describing it as “futuristic”, “rapid” and “a transport revelation”.
It is anticipated that the system will go fully live this summer, with the 21 pod vehicles operating 22 hours a day.
