Inspired by China’s urbanization that has great impact in everyone’s daily life, Liuyi Zhang has designed ZEEKR 00M, a public transportation concept that makes commuting much more comfortable. Passengers of public transport seem have to bear with all uncomfortable factors, it might seem unimportant, but taking public transport has been proven to affect your physical and mental health. Furthermore, social transport resources are often distributed unevenly during the day and most often resources are dispersed in the city.
ZEEKR 00M is a concept pod designed for future public transport system in China. In the near future, the government would focus heavily on developing public rail transit, especially in rural areas. It’s undeniable that in big cities with high-income residents, they often have greater access to public transportation, this is not the case for rural residents. Access to safe and reliable transportation can have great impact on the well-being of rural populations, especially in communities where walking or cycling may not be feasible alternatives to get to their destinations or to receive important healthcare services.
In collaboration with ZEEKR, a Chinese automobile brand, Liuyi Zhang explains that not only ZEEKR 00M would contribute to create reliable and flexible public transport, it also supports passengers’ well being while commuting. Each pod can accommodate up to two people, or a passenger can choose a private pod where they can enjoy their commuting alone in peace and tranquility.
