Public Transport System for 2030 for PACE Forum Design Competition

The Public Transport System for 2030 project was carried out for PACE forum Design competition for the Category of “Emerging Market Mobility Vehicle”. The concept is a hybrid of public and private transportation providing quick access built with existing infrastructure with minimal space and time. The design addresses the shortcomings of Flyovers and metros (robust structures owing to dead weight) which would require high consumption of raw materials, construction time, and money. The future vision consists of pre built structures which would minimize traffic disruption during construction.

We notice that each flying pod can carry up to 2 person, yes it’s more private but we kinda hope that it can carry more persons to eliminate any queue. We believe there are many people who would choose to use this flyover instead of land transportation, because it’s fast and quiet.

  1. The design of the columns looks more appropriate for the 1980s with its arbitrary shape and unnecessarily bulkiness. Why not just steel streetlight-style columns? It's similar to Skytran, which is a better executed idea, for going up to 100mph in tandem 2-seat vehicles with better aerodynamics.

    • Steve, the columns were designed in sync with chevrolet branding, hence the shape. I agree with you on the bulkiness, it can be reduced.

  2. Needs bigger pod cars for passenger use alone IE carry 20 or 30 per pod
    Rerun Disneyland pods from Tommland to Fantasyland in 50s era rerun style
    Otherwise great idea BUT old.
