Here's the deal, City Hall. If you'd like us to give up our cars and start getting cozy with the public transport system, you need to build this thing.

The "Capsule Train" concept was designed by Hamit Kanuni Kuralkan, from Melbourne, Australia. Anyone who's had to squeeze into a St. Kilda Road tram at 8:30am will no doubt understand perfectly why someone might dedicate themselves to designing a solution.


Designed to give each passenger their own little enclosed side-facing space to travel in, or the option of sharing a 4-person capsule with friends, the Capsule Train?which might be better described as a tram, really?seats up to 26 individuals. Admittedly this is a far smaller number than you can cram into a regular tram, and you'd need hundreds of them for every ten regular trams, but we'll conveniently ignore that for now.
