What if you didn’t have to wait at the bus stop ever again?
What if the bus would come exactly at the time when you show up
at the nearest crossroad?
What if you could choose the place where the bus picks you up?
What if you could get a whole new public transport experience?
SCHONDA is your answer!
SCHONDA is a cutting-edge solution for sustainable city transportation. It is a dial-a-ride bus that brings taxi-style convenience to traditional bus service. Public transport that is both highly efficient and tailored to individual needs will attract more users resulting in the reduction of traffic congestion, and lower emission pollution.
How does it work?
The customer requests a trip by phone. The network management engine calculates the ideal route, coordinating it with other requests, and confirms the pickup and arrival times allowing for optimal trip planning and minimal wait times. That way SCHONDA offers mobility almost "door to door" at a cost that is not significantly higher than that of a normal bus ride.
The maximal part of the car body is designed as a ultra-lightweight and inexpensive torso, by tensioning an elastic skin on six holms. The covering is designed as a modular system to reduced the number of parts, what makes the vehicle more economic and ecological at the same time.
