PASSENGERS IN CONTAINERS

A futuristic vision of future passenger and cargo transport is presented. To speed up lengthy transit operations, passengers would be accommodated in comfortable, compartment-like containers. Several diagrams show how such containers can be accommodated aboard an aircraft or a helicopter, on a truck, or in a railroad car. A system would result in great economy in both cost and time. Of particular importance is such a system for cargo traffic.
