Based in the Universal Design guidelines , the developed design creates an interior for a rapid public transportation system, with automatic operation and high service frequency. The optimized internal layout grants more comfort and accessibility to the system users. The grab bars are used both for passenger support and safety, and as structural reinforcement to the vehicle. The modular assembly system present in the benches allows for a better composition in different vehicle sizes, and also facilitates the maintenance and cleaning. The internal layout has a designated luggage area.
