Zero Carbon Cities
small. | floc® by Urban.MASS | Mass Transit for a New Age
All around the world people continue to migrate to cities, large and small. Cities are the hubs of economies and offer rich possibilities for commerce and culture to thrive.
But cities, as they grow larger, become denser presenting significant challenges in the form of congestion, pollution, quality of life.
floc®, by Urban.MASS Ltd, (a small.® group company) drastically reduces the cost and environmental disruption of building high-frequency new city metro and tram systems. Installation is non-invasive, quick and simple. Congestion and pollution are reduced and the quality of life in the city is improved.
Governments around the world are calling urgently for increased use of safe, shared, public transportation to attain their carbon net (zero) targets.
floc® mass transit systems are efficient and elegant, suitable for both modern and ancient cities – and better and less costly than conventional trains and trams.
