Streamline Metro / Metro train

Streamline Metro
Streamline Metro

The average commuter spends 250 hours yearly driving to work; imagine if that time could be productively spent. The “Streamline” gets commuters out of cars and into the metro by offering the chance for a productive commute. With personal touch screens, riders can do anything from catching up on TV shows to managing stock portfolios, from comfortable, private seats. To enhance metro flow, wider aisles, more open spaces, and perch seating have been incorporated to improve crowd movement. Cloud computing and micro transactions act as additional revenue, allowing this innovative metro to create an experience to which a car cannot compare.
