Office Shuttle Buses Turn Commutes into Work Opportunities
Belgium – The Office on Wheels project, by Flanders Institute for Mobility, plans to transport commuters to work by shuttle bus between urban centers and business parks not easily reached by public transport. These busses will feature fast and secure internet connections, train-style tables, printers and coffee so that users can begin their workdays while traveling. The prototype vehicle is undergoing a 6-month test run. After full analysis, it could then be adapted into a fully functioning model for bus companies and public transport operators.
Flanders Institute for Mobility aims to enable commuters to do their office job while commuting, not to mention easing rush-hour congestion and reducing vehicle pollution.
