STACKABLE CARS
Urban Solar Recharge Port in the City

Designed for mobility in urban cores,
the stackable car is for two
passengers. New transport stacks are
placed throughout the downtown to
create a linked transportation system
that works within existing
infrastructure.  By locating stacks in
urban areas and vital junction zones,
the car allows the populace a certain
flexibility to merge mass transit
effectively with personal mobility.
This is an exceedingly resourceful
parking scheme, as the stack accepts
inward bound vehicles and recharges
their power supply. Similar to
baggage pushcarts at airports, users
basically take the first completely
charged automobile at the face of
the stack. These urban vehicles are
not a substitute for individual cars,
taxis, buses, or trains, but rather a
new archetype that endorses a
communally accountable and more
potent means of urban mobility.
