Tailgates Of Cant / Tailgates

Tailgates Of Cant

The MRT has now become the mainstream of the mass transportation. Yet, its tailgates are all 90 degrees vertical, resulting in the inconvenience of the flow of traffic.
If we change the angle of the tailgates from vertical 90 degrees to tilted 150 degrees, it will not only increase the average of the flow but also allow passengers more convenience when they get off the car during rush hours.
