Transportation experts often site train travel’s efficiency as one of the main reasons it is a “green” transportation option. Now it seems that Priestmangoode, a design company from the UK, has a plan to make train travel even more efficient, both in terms of energy and travel time. Their idea is the moving platform, a tram-style system that would take passengers from town to a high-speed train outside the city, all without stopping at a station. Watch the video below for a look at how they envision their idea working.

We like the idea of a moving platform, and wonder how fast we could travel from D.C. to Boston without stopping.
