I'm not sure how I feel about this. You can call me old school which I prefer the old way of traveling. But then again, nothing seems to be safe anymore. Perhaps the future is near in my hometown of Henry County. They are looking at installing the first ever transit pods to test that will take you from Tanger Outlets in Locust Grove, Ga to the Atlanta Airport.
In my head, that is a long ways to put in something like that and I don't see it taking a short time to install. The thing is, I-75 is already horrible any time of day except for night. Imagine having construction there. I guess my hometown friends and family will have to learn the back roads to the back roads if this happens. But if it will make it easier in the end, I'm all for that. I just know how the traffic is there.
Get ready people! The Future might be closer than you think! Here is what bizjournals.com had to say about the future in Henry County, "Boston-based Transit X would install a 19-foot-high track for the SUV-sized pods, that would hold up to five passengers and travel suspended from the track at highway speeds. The route under consideration is from Tanger Outlets in Locust Grove to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, according to the presentation by county Commissioner Bruce Holmes and J.T. Williams, a developer and Georgia Regional Transportation Authority board member who is also the agent for Transit X."
