Do you always struggle to reach the platform in time when catching a train? Then how about a platform which comes to your house before catching up with a non-stop high-speed locomotive?

That's the idea behind Moving Platforms, a concept from a British designer, Paul Priestman, New Scientist magazine reported.

A network of trams would carry passengers out of the city to a line outside. The tram would speed up while the train slowed down, allowing the 2 to safely dock for passengers to transfer to the train.

A moving pavement is a great idea for public transport.
