The Heathrow Success Story
Ultra PRT’s first commercially operational pod system in London’s Heathrow provides a vital link between the T5 Business Car Park and the terminal itself. A powerful example of the system’s benefits, the small footprint of the Heathrow pods system enables it to fit within the tight constraints imposed by the airport infrastructure.
Executed by Ultra PRT, UK, the system consists of 21 vehicles, a total of 3.8 kilometres of one-way guideway, and three stations – two in the T5 Business Car Park and one at Terminal 5. To date the system has carried over 2 million passengers and till July 2017 has covered 6 million autonomously drive passenger kilometres. The system reliability had been more than 99%.
