Magnetic Levitation Technology

See this article about a vision to install a pod system that uses magnetic levitation technology in Clearwater, Florida: https://www.tampabay.com/news/transportation/masstransit/Traffic-solution-in-the-sky-or-just-pie-in-the-sky-_164159540/. My question when I first read about this idea is, will the pods be accessible to people with mobility disabilities who use wheelchairs and other mobility devices? Would this be a way for people who are unable to drive to get around Clearwater (and other cities) without having to rely on drivers? I'm very interested in seeing how this technology develops and how it would impact transportation options for people with disabilities and people who are otherwise unable to drive. :)
