Carry your own comfort
Theoretically, means of public transportation like city bus, metro or train are considered the best for commute in terms of economic, environmental and other planning consideration. However, there are only a few examples where it is the most willful choice of commuters.
An ever growing population served by limited public transit capabilities, can make the commutes longer - slower - stressful. These issues have a different magnitude with varying demogaphics(especially elderly and children).
Increasing seats, more buses, frequent metros are there - and will exist. But can you design something which can ease our distress while commute? For example - Can it serve as a portable seat, or something to lean, or give us shade, or maybe as simple as make long commutes fun, or make waiting a little less boring, or make us socially more connected? or you can come up with something new altogether!
