Abstract

This paper presents a new concept of solving the problems of 21st century’s megacities of the planet. Bangalore, Mumbai, Cairo, Dubai, Bangkok, Dhaka, Addis Ababa, Lagos and other great cities are getting chaotic by the day in spite of plethora of facilities. The cities of the planet are growing like monsters in an unstoppable way. This is putting tremendous strain on the complete spectrum of resources including road space, building materials, pedestrian walkways, healthy quality of life of citizens, water bodies, parks, open spaces etc. The Skyscraper Bus concept is an attempt to optimize the space domain of our cities. People are increasingly getting impatient with never ending building works in the cities including for metros, flyovers, bridges, tunnels, pavements etc. This bus is an attempt to leverage the vertical dimension to free up the precious real estate for not more and more construction but for better “green and fun” enjoyment by citizens of the megacities. This will lead to the victory for pedestrians and cyclists. This will also lead to more greenery which will help bequeath rich green and environmentally sustainable legacy for future generations.

Keywords: Skyscraper Bus, Environmentally Optimized Solution, Vertical dimension, Mass Transportation, Megacities, Planet
