Theoretically, means of public transportation like city bus, metro or train are considered the best for commute in terms of economic, environmental and other planning consideration. However, there are only a few examples where it is the most willful choice of commuters.
An ever growing population served by limited public transit capabilities, can make the commutes longer - slower - stressful.
These issues have a different magnitude with varying demogaphics(especially elderly and children).
Increasing seats, more buses, frequent metros are there - and will exist. But can you design something which can ease our distress while commute? For example - Can it serve as a portable seat, or something to lean, or give us shade, or maybe as simple as make long commutes fun, or make waiting a little less boring, or make us socially more connected? or you can comeup with something new altogether!
