RAILPOD Vehicles

RAILPOD is a compact vehicle tailored to provide privacy and efficiency for families or groups traveling together. It eliminates unnecessary stops by traveling non-stop directly to the final destination, significantly reducing travel time. Echoing the features of the RAILBUS vehicle, the RAILPOD comfortably seats six people, with additional standing room for extra passengers or children, and sufficient space for luggage.

Designed for on-demand use, RAILPOD can be requested at any station and arrives swiftly, supported by its extensive network. While it accommodates private rides as a priority, it also serves the public by transporting various passengers to different destinations.

Together, RAILBUS and RAILPOD form a versatile transportation system, catering to a variety of travel needs and enhancing the commuter experience.
