You drive your car on a motorway. A lane leads you to the entrance station of the new means of transportation AUTOSHUTTLE. You enter a transparent cabin available only for you and turn off the engine.

After ca. 1 minute the cabin starts and brings you at constantly 180 km/h (112 mph) to your individually desired motorway exit. You pay the fare during the trip with a credit card. You may change the desired destination whenever you want.

If you request: "take next exit", you will stop there after ca. 3 minutes at the next AUTOSHUTTLE exit station and leave the cabin through the opened front door. The fare is cheaper than the operational costs of driving the car, i. e. cheaper than fuel, wear and tear.

You may use AUTOSHUTTLE in a public luxury bus as well, e. g. 350 km (220 m) from New York to Washington D. C. in two and a half hours for $13 (13 Euro, 8 Pounds). A heavy lorry will be transported at 180 km/h (112 mph) and cheaper than its operational costs as well.
