These railway transport innovations range from personal metro pods to submerged speed trains that will change the way one looks at conventional travel. While underground subway systems are becoming more reliant on modern technology, public transit in poverty-ridden nations is also getting an upgrade and is becoming wi-fi compatible.

On the luxury train front, Asian train accommodations are beginning to resemble 5 star hotels and mansions rather than temporary vehicles that get passengers from one destination to another.

Opulent mobile hotels and submerged trains that are intended for transcontinental travel are just some of the railway transport innovations gaining attention in today's world. Other memorable examples from this list include futuristic streetcar concepts that focus on cleanliness and privacy-enhancing features.
