By the year of 2030, it is expected that urban areas would increase to more than 8.1 billion, almost 60% of the world population. As our mega cities become highly dense and more complex, we need better transportation system with high efficiency.
m.U.C a.k.a Maglev Urban Commuter is a design proposal for our future urban transportation. With growing demand of mobility in mega city populations, it can lead to 2 urgent problems: shortage of fossil fuels and limitation of urban space. This project aims to develop futuristic inner city electric vehicle that is highly efficient and has the ability to create a harmonious and intelligent link between people and traffic.
