2013-2014 Competition

The Topic: "Tomorrow’s Transit" - Design a way to move people in and around your city.

The Challenge: Identify a problem of moving people in your future city and design a mode of transportation to solve this problem.

Whether it’s by foot, bike, car or public transportation, our ability to function in the modern world depends on our ability to move. Whatever you do, wherever you go, you need a way to get there. And, with global urban populations on the increase and energy and climate change issues front and center, the demand for creating transportation solutions that are quick, safe, reliable and sustainable has never been more urgent.
