The silicon valley of India, Bengaluru, is hopeful of getting PRT or Pod Taxis through which it hopes to solve most of its traffic woes and in the process cater to last-mile connectivity.

One must note that PRT is a mode of public transport that will provide personal, on-demand, and origin-to-destination travel that too through a network of dedicated guideways.



The technology of the next generation, if the plan actually goes through, the IT capital of India will become the second city in India to use this technology, with the Union government already having passed the plan for a similar project in Gurugram, Haryana.

 

The city of Bengaluru plans to extend this project in six stretches on the phase basis, these six proposed routes according to the BBMP are,

Phase 1: MG Road Metro Station to The Leela Palace junction. Distance is four km.

The total area covered by this project would be up to 35.5 km and this mode will consist of completely automatic vehicles like cable cars or pod cars. The vehicles will also be comfortable enough to transport small groups of passengers to their final destination.
