The Freight*Bus Concept Proposal for London Bus

The new bus design by industrial designer, Hugh Frost, is a perfect answer for the London’s congestion and pollution problems. The concept design is run on batteries hence is environment friendly. The Freight*BUS as it is called has the concept of “On-Route” as the fundamental base of the overall system and as per the designer, this massive new vehicle features an advanced technology and it can adapt as per the no. of passengers and freight. This flexibility is in part due to ceiling-suspended pairs of seats, which can be completely folded out of the way. The bus can ply during the day to ferry passengers across the city while during the off peak hours or in the night the bus can be utilized to transport goods, thus a good transport solution for sure.

Text from the website:
The Freight*BUS is designed for several possible propulsion systems, including batteries that are automatically recharged when the bus stops and the potential for fuel cell operation in the future. Thanks to in-wheel electric motors, the bus can manoeuvre into tight bus stops in a ‘crab’ like movement.

    Be very Cool or NYC Transit.

    Boston Transit.

    SF Bay CA area.

    Las Vegas NV.

    Very Radical shape & idea.

    Museumize the Old Buses or make for VIP Use or for Pvt Group Rentals.

    Imagine wine & dine on a London Bus circa 2001

    in London or any city worldwide.

    Wow.

    Or use London Buses USED for:

    VIP Use

    Group Use charter

    Tours

    Museums?

    TV & Movie use.

    OR Scotland Yard can use for mobile SWAT Vehicle for City use?

    Or carry SBS SAS personnel.

    Build this new London Bus & retire the Old bus.

    Boom for London alone on bus sales.

  2. Come on people, this 'futuristic' design is real ugly and frightening! I'd be shoked if this thing moved towards me on the street. It's not match to London's architecture and not friendly to people.
    Why should we have so many space shuttles on streets?
    Don't let designer's ambitions spoil London bus.
    As to electric engine etc – they can be implemented in any other shape as well.
