Public transport does not deliver door-to-door service, while private transport in cars is clogging urban streets. Podchain overcomes the public-private dichotomy of transport by being both public and private. A business model of fractional ownership makes it easily affordable for individuals, communities and small businesses. Each ride is a blockchain transaction allowing for precise cost control. The Podchain system permanently updates to send pods to where they are needed.
Today´s conventional cars are used only 5% of their lifetime: 95% of their lifetime they just stand around and occupy vast space on parking lots or streets, space which could be better used for communal areas, urban farming and green spaces. Podchain inverts these inefficiencies: A pod can be used 95% of its lifetime as it continues to operate as an on-demand transport service, thereby significantly reducing the total number of vehicles on the road.
Built as a modular shell system, a Podchain pod can be quickly refit and reconfigured to offer a range of mobile services in addition to transport.
