Pod taxis are all set to come!! Uttar Pradesh is to introduce pod taxis. This is in order to facilitate travel of people from Greater Noida to the Noida International Airport. Such driverless pod transport system is popular in many western countries. This can easily accommodate four to six people at a time per car.
As per reports, the Yamuna Expressway and Eastern Peripheral Expressway will sign an agreement. This will be with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC). This to extend the connectivity to remote areas.
Referring to this, MLA Dhirendra Singh said that though there is metro connectivity to Greater Noida, Jewar International airport is around 25 km away from Greater Noida city. So, this option has been taken into consideration. Adding, to bridge the said distance gap, pod taxis will be useful.
As per Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA), the DMRC will be responsible for developing the pod taxi service. This will connect Greater Noida and Jewar International Airport. In regard to this, a detailed project report (DPR) will also come soon. According to reports, the cost of the said project is to be around INR 50-60 crore per km. This will bring the total cost of the project to around INR 1250-1500 crore.
The upcoming Jewar Airport will be easily accessible via road from Rajasthan, Haryana, Delhi. Also, a large part of Uttar Pradesh.
