The 3rd generation of the pods, called Group Rapid Transit vehicles, is the product of a collaboration between Singapore’s second-largest public transportation company, SMRT, and a technology and transportation company based in the Netherlands. The Singapore-based joint venture, known as 2getthere, issued a press release on Wednesday about the new initiative. Carel van Helsdingen, Chairman and founder of 2getthere and SMRT Services Managing Director Colin Lim made the announcement together. “Building on decades of technological development and experience gathered through projects implemented worldwide, our innovative technology will be able to optimize the efficiency, reliability, and safety of transport networks,” said Helsdingen. “There is a growing national push to implement future mobility solutions,” added Lim.
