TRANSPORTATION and DESIGN
PROBLEM SOLVING STATEMENTS
It is the year 2020. Traffic in New York City has slowed to an average rate of 4 miles per hour. On a busy day you can walk some places faster than traveling by car or bus.
The mayor has had enough and has closed Manhattan to cars, buses, and taxis! As the lead designer for the Department of Transportation it is up to you to decide how people will get to their destinations.
Your transportation system should use at least three modalities for commuters. Design each new transportation device and write a description of how it will operate.
Show a transit map of how the modality systems work together.
