The Slimo concept design is an innovative and chic way to ride the bus.

As a single seat public transportation system, Slimo’s design is a pod with computer access, allowing for a relaxing morning commute.

The Slimos can also chain together to form a bus-like unit that still gives passengers their privacy.

Implications - Public transportation is a perennial problem in metropolitan areas. Industrial designers must balance commuters' needs for efficiency and privacy with city planners' desires to cut down on carbon emissions and traffic congestion during rush hour. Autonomous personal pods that can operate without passenger input pose a potential solution, but this market has much room for development. Stats for Single-Seat Buses Trending: Older & Mild
