Pod Taxis are driverless, electric vehicles that can transport a small number of passengers at a faster speed. They move on electrically powered tracks that are built separately on roads to avoid regular traffic. UP will be the first state in India to have this international transit system, which is already present in Dubai, Singapore, and Heathrow Airport in London.
The proposed route for the Pod Taxis is 12-14 km long and will have 12 stations, including Sector 29, Handicraft Park, MSME Park in Sector 29, Apparel Park, Sector 32, Sector 33, Toy Park, and Sector 21. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2024, and it is estimated that around 37,000 passengers will be able to commute daily using these modern Pod Taxis.
