Can the world’s newest transport technology fit into one of the world’s most historic cities?
Advanced Transport Systems is offering designers around the world the chance to become involved in the design of ULTra Personal Rapid Transit, as part of the CIVITAS Renaissance Projec investigating sustainable transport options in historic cities. The competition entails the design of vehicles, stations, guideway, and other infrastructure design elements; participants can choose to address any or all of these elements. Entries will be judged based on their feasibility, aesthetics, and originality. Many of the submitted designs will be presented as part of a public & stakeholder feedback process; these designs — and the responses to them — will be incorporated into our final report to the EU. A smaller number of winning designs will be selected by a panel of judges; these will receive international exposure in the media, the EU project dissemination process, and the Advanced Transport Systems website.
Final Entry Submission Date: October 01, 2009
