Bus Roots

What a cool idea! Bus Roots was second runner-up at the DesignWala Grand Idea Competition, so this is still very much an early prototype, but the thought of busses topped with lovely green gardens would be quite a sight.

The team behind it claims that:

If we grew a garden on the roof of every one of the 4,500 buses in the MTA bus fleet, we would have 35 acres of new rolling green space in the city.

I’m really curious to know how much this would change or offset air quality.
