Florists in Taipei have transformed a city bus into what they call 'The Forest Bus' -- a reformed transport vehicle decorated head to toe with greenery and vegetation. Florist Alfie Lin and designer Xiao Qing-Yang were responsible for the creation of this bus, which is equipped with turf-lined seats, a hanging orchard complete with ginger lilies, a variety of ferns, and a grassy facade. The bus acts as an art installation, reconnecting the citizens with nature.

The bus is currently operating as a regular form of city-transportation, charming passengers with its leafy-green fragrance and providing its users with a breath of fresh air in a city that's concerned with its air-pollution. The mobile greenhouse can fit up to 20 passengers and exemplifies solutions to growing urban populations while promoting environmental sustainability.
