Public transportation will feature diverse options depending on the needs of people and businesses. This design replaces bus systems with a more efficient and private â€œCellsâ€ that also provide incentive for small business shipping and service industry distribution.
Public Transit Sketches - The two rail design is effective because it allows moving cells to bypass other cells that are arriving or departing from their destination.
Cargo Cell Sketches - The design is inspired by both the structure and function of plant cells. Contained within a strong cell wall, plant cells are modular yet self reliant, converting the suns light into energy.
Photovoltaic windows - Researchers at MIT have developed an organic dye that is added to window material, concentrating light to the surface edge.
The light is captured and stored as electricity by solar cells bordering the surface.
Cargo Cells - Cargo cells create incentive for small businesses peer-to-peer shipping that stimulates local business cooperation.
The Cell opening matches the dimensions of a shipping container door. A twenty foot container can hold five full loads without wasting space due to the shellâ€™s modular dimension.
Service Industry Value - This system will add value to small businesses, encouraging community growth and solidarity with peer-to-peer shipping over the grid.
Public Cells - The size of the cells offer more privacy and utilize a face-to-face configuration with enough room for two small children to share a seat.
A touch-screen interface built into the stationary wall surface is used for direct route navigation.
Cell Cleaning - A large drain in the floor opens up to allow the cells to be hosed down after they have been scrubbed down and garbage had been removed. This was inspired by my personal experience working in city parks, cleaning outdoor public restrooms.
Transit Security - For the safety of the commuters, patrons would be required to register and acquire an identification card in order to use the system. Each cell also contains a security camera for added safety.
