Designer Mac Funamizu dreamed up these Future Transportation Concepts with the idea that crowded public transit in Asia would be shed of a great deal of chaos. Two primary ideas came out of his studies that help to deal with people on foot and those who are riding the subway.

Firstly, a system of moving sidewalks was devised that would be intended for installation in busy train stations or as underground pedestrian highways. Lane after lane would guide you swiftly from A to B, with the strips gradually increasing in speed towards the outside. The fastest would move at the pace of a bicycle.

The other Future Transportation Concept is a real-time ceiling subway map. More train riders would see it above them than they would on the wall, and this would give them an up-to-the-minute understanding of their exact location, thanks to a moving red indicator.
