- Pods enter a Station in what is called an offline guideway. The JPods diverge from the main line traffic to stop and allow passengers to board or deboard. In this way, nobody else on the system is hindered in their travel due to people getting on or off. The offline Stations can be free-standing or can become a part of a building, depending on the best fit with a business or municipal need. One example might be a station under a canopy attached at the back of a hotel or one of the stores in the North Outlet Mall. The following is an example of a free-standing station. A full video of station operations can be found at https://vimeo.com/99893372
- Stations have multiple berths, arranged as some for JPod queuing on arrival, some for deboarding, and some for boarding. The number of each kind of berth is driven by the station capacity in JPods per minute. The station capacity will be defined in the early portion of the project once initial demand at each location is known.
- There is a Kiosk in each station for purchase of rides. The kiosk provides a code that can be used on the stanchion. The stanchion at each berth allows a person to enter a code or scan a QR Code on their smartphone. Once a valid code is provided, the JPod door opens and the passenger(s) can be seated.
