Public trams system is convenient for those who are walking but for those with a wheelchair, bicycle or that need to carry around stuff, like moving big objects, for these people it is often more convenient to jump in the car and drive to the place that they need. A system that is still not accessible by everyone My idea and inspiration comes from an existing transport mode, the tram. I would like to take it to the future by creating a system that will be more efficient. On a bigger scale capable of carrying more people including wheelchairs and bicycles. Working on a system that will benefit the local to distance travelling.

Imagine a place where everyone is equal ... Imagine a place that everyone can be part of... Imagine a transport that everyone can share...

Equal to everyone. 2009

2032 The tram design is based on Ground-Level power supply, also known as surface collection and Alimentation par Sol (APS), is a modern method of third-rail electrical pick-up for street trams that does not pose a danger to people or animals and can be used in pedestrian areas and city streets. It also means no more wires in the air polluting the city scape.

Bicycle racks will be on the edges at the rear of the tram. That will create space and no chaos. The bicycles will be locked standing vertically as shown on the image on the right, this will create more space for prams, trailer, etc.

A maximum of 15 bicycles can be put on the racks, but if required more bicycle can fit between the racks on the ground. The same applies with trailers. After putting their bicycle on the rack the owner can go and take a seat.

In each tram will be two ticket machines, one in the front and the other in the back. Most of the public transport system willi be working with a MyKi, but you still have the option to buy a normal ticket on the tram. Near each machine are instructions, in three different languish English, Arabic and French, on how to use it.
