By 2030, public transportation was mainly Automated and Driverless. The Transport Duopoly Board cited this as a victory for technology and productivity: ‘We spend much less time maintaining machines than people.’
The Pods Network uses dynamic allocation to match passengers and locations. Transfer between pods is sometimes required but minimized. Security was ensured as the Pods screened passengers and destinations based on Brain Booster or ID chip data. This also allowed the optimum route and passenger allocation to be calculated, thereby reducing traffic and wastage.
The Pod design won numerous awards for its application of advanced North Korean ergonomics.
