city bus journey in 2030, launched by ISUZU

 

‘What kind of a bus trip do I want my 15 year-old

son to have in the future?’

 

Zone 2030 addresses different user preferences of the citizens, ones who want to spend a quiet bus trip in the silent zone, and ones who are open to interaction in the free zone. Passengers experience interactive tools, such an an on-board museum. The value of the time spent in the bus is increased.

Redefining the Design Brief

The brief given by ISUZU and ITU was to design a city bus for 2030. I redefined the brief by picturing myself in 2030 and designing the bus journey my future kids would take.

As populations increase, cities taller and wider. People will live in high buildings; they will be able to see the top of the vehicles. The upper part of the bus can be used for specific informative purposes.

Over the years, technological devices will adapt to our social and emotional needs. My research focused on different people's behaviors on public transportation, such as drawing on the back of a seat or a wet window, offering a seatencountering same people possibly from the neighborhood.
