"These little "cabs" perform well in tests. They average about 40 kilometers an hour, which is at least three times the average speed in the city. They hold four passengers, and use 75% less energy per passenger kilometer than a car."

"Great site!"

"So finally someone is thinking outside the "Mass Transit" box!! This is a wonderful idea that is too long in coming. Hopefully it will do well and spread to other municipalities around the globe."

"I don't think the travel time is very efficient for destinations outside of cities.. It will take so much longer to get there even with traffic jams.. overall, this is a swell idea..inxpensive."

"if the taxi is come automatically then, we can upgrade a taxi. It means we can use a bluetooth of mobile whose used 5 km connection and this device is in every mobile to come to each other at anytime."

"Nikhil - that's a really cool idea! You might be interested in the automated taxi from the novel Sagramanda."
