Where many international cities have embraced double decker buses and split-level train coaches, the incorporation of truly spacious streetcars into existing transit systems is still a new idea. In the discussion of a concept like the Rail Whale Tram, it's worth noting that in many cases, this means of metropolitan public transit often battles busy street traffic amidst a gridlock of automobiles.
Grzegorz Rozwadowski is thus quite clever to suggest increasing the capacity of such conveyances as to lessen the need for so many drivers on the road, and to perhaps reduce the frequency of streetcars en route. These 110-person cabs will never leave impatient passengers waiting on the corner for the next Rail Whale Tram with empty seats, and the hybrid electric engine makes this robust system nearly guilt-free.
