    Question what are they called? (To those who know a bit about the Heathrow airport)

    Hi all,
    I really want to know what those small electric mini-cars moving on rails above the ground are called and what they are for. It's near the Heathrow Airport and seems to have something to do with that? Could it be transporting passengers to and from the carparks?

    Thanks

    The system is called ULTra (urban light transport). Here's a link to an article and video.

    At Gatwick Airport it's just called the "transit". It shuttles passengers between the North and South terminals. By the way, we don't say the Heathrow Airport. No article is required.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
