Passenger Experience

  • Passenger Experience

Relax in a sophisticated passenger environment.

Developed in collaboration with Semcon, an international technology company specializing in user experience, TransPod’s design takes the commuter travel experience to the next level.

The journey begins

Arrive at the TransPod station via car or public transportation.

Experience effortless boarding

Your smartphone is your ticket through the doors and into the secure boarding area. Long and painful security checks at the airport for short flights are now a distant memory.

Board your pod

Even if you missed the last departure by a few seconds, simply transfer to the next departing pod - which leaves as soon as 80 seconds later.

The standard TransPod commuter pod offers 27 seats in a 2+1 seating configuration that allows for a generously sized aisle down the middle of the pod. Extended versions of the Pod can accept up to 50 passengers. The seat-to-seat distance is a plentiful 950mm (37.4”) and each seat has a comfortable width of 480mm (18.9”). Carry-on luggage can be safely stored in the overhead compartments and personal belongings can be placed in the seat base pockets.

Experience natural light and openness as you travel: A new kind of skylight that perfectly mimics the feel of daylight.

A skylight experience

The TransPod interior integrates next-generation technology to offer passengers a skylight that perfectly reproduces the feeling of daylight. Using CoeLux technology, the commuter pod offers the true effects of the light and space of the outdoors.

A passenger experience at the top of the edge

The beautifully sculpted seats and ergonomic design can be adjusted and calibrated through a personal visual display console to maximize individual comfort.

To personalize the experience, the adjusted settings are automatically set to your preferences at your reserved seat the next time you board any TransPod vehicle.

Comfort at ultra-high-speed

The interior is designed to provide a warm and welcoming ambience so passengers can relax while travelling at over 1000 km/h.

Leading towards the future

The ceiling is not the only brilliant feature. Stunning visuals of the outside scenery are displayed on the continuous side window. An iconic speedometer on the front wall enhances the aesthetics of the overall travel experience.

Independant seat

Each seat is independent and offers its own set of armrests and an enclosed base

Travel comfort

An ultra widescreen, a neck cushion and an extendable tray table, allow you to benefit from all the elements required for working or entertaining during your journey.

Adjustable features

The large headrest is adjustable at will and provides the necessary privacy. The seat also offers the possibility of adjusting the pressure of the lumbar support and the rigidity of the seat.
