Top 35 Commuting Ideas in June

From Boosted Hybrid Vehicles to Trackable Rideshare Programs

— July 3, 2016 — Autos
Autonomous buses, smart bicycles and single-person cars are just a few innovations that are explored in the top June 2016 commuting ideas. These concepts and new releases are making it easier than ever for people to get around on a daily basis, thanks to a boost from technology. One of the best examples of this is an electric bike named 'Sue' that provides real-time insights that are connected to the cloud.

In order to better accommodate members of an active population, La Malle de Bois trains in Japan are designed with ample space for storing multiple bicycles, which can often be a huge hassle otherwise when traveling by bus. Another bus that boasts an innovative design is the Ultra Electric, which is electric as its name states, as well as 3D-printed.
