ULTra Personal Pods: Taxis of the future?

Transport, urban planning, business, public services, energy and food supply can no longer be considered in isolation. We need to create truly integrated systems where people have choice, flexibility and seamless connectivity: people need the ability to check information before, and during, travel will allow people to optimize their journeys, and perhaps even substitute a degree of physical movement with virtual access to lifestyle needs.

 

 

Which solutions do we have?

MIT CIty Car – Three or four CityCars can fit in a standard parking space.

MIT CityCar System

A stackable, electric two-seater car designed to be used as part of a mobility on-demand system – similar to a bike-hire scheme such as Vélib, where stacks of vehicles are available for instant short-term hire at key transport hubs such as train stations and multiple other points around the city.  Future iterations could be integrated with the urban energy supply system – stacks of parked cars act as batteries that could ‘smooth’ electricity demand in a city with lots of micro generation such as solar roofs or small-scale wind turbines.

Urban bike system

By August 2014, more than 600 cities worldwide had a bike-sharing program, up from 535 systems, in 49 countries, for a total fleet of 517,000 bicycles

Bike Sharing System

Bike Sharing Systems are successful in Paris, London, Amsterdam, Washington, D.C., New York, Dublin, Miami and more

Bike sharing systems will reduce traffic congestion and help clear up the air of sprawling cities all over the world.

 

Transport Public Services

Transport Public Services: Not only for rail, bike and walking routes. The city developes an integrated ticketing, real time passenger information systems, and multi-modal passenger information systems.

Transport Public Services

  • The government of New Zealand is investing record amounts in the transport system, and will invest more than $36 billion through the National Land Transport Fund over the next decade, including $4 billion on public transport.Auckland.
  • The metropolitan area of Bologna is planning to introduce an integrated public transport fare system for trains and buses. The system will include public bike and car sharing, as well as the Park and Ride service.

Instead of owning cars, people will summon autonomous vehicles, hop in, and head to their destination. With fewer cars to be stored, parking lots and garages will give way to development, eventually bringing down the cost of housing in tight markets through increased supply.

Pressure to expand roads will ease, as vehicle-to-vehicle technology allows more cars to use the same road space. Traffic violence will become a thing of the past as vehicles communicate instantly with each other and the world around them.

Using large solar panels that are placed on the roof of the car, this car can travel 250 miles without sunshine and on a sunny day, when fully charged.
