Domination of motorized vehicle has reign our traffic since its invention.
In 2010 there were more than 1 billion motor vehicles in use in the world.
This “invasion” then keep on growing, alienating pedestrian and other people who doesn’t have it. furthermore, using motorized vehicle, people communicate by using honks and dim of lights, a type of alternative and pseudo communication.
Traffic jam becomes problems every metropolitan city, resulting stressful society everyday.

The idea of Trans(c)end is to humanize the road traffic.
The people should once again rise as the functional an communicative individuals in the agenda of making a more understanding diverse society.
The proposal develop into three important segments.

1. Minimizing Area for Motorized Vehicle
The road will be turned into sets of travelators which will be arranged with different speed. Instead of cars and motorcycle, people will be walking on the road, auto-pedestrianized, So now people can interact directly even when there’s traffic jam, people will be able to start a conversation, and finally, societies will communicate again, developing understanding between each other. The other effect will be: healthier people, gained through cardio workout for the entire people by using travelator as “universal treadmill”

2. Surrogacy
Carbon emission should be minimized and will definitely be improved if our mind able to travel. Trans(c)end marks the ending of public vehicle by making mind traveling possible. By doing this, we will minimize vector and movement, optimize our use of time. Instead of movement, there will only be leap of mind, ending and redefine the meaning of transportation.

3. Less Road for Vehicle Means More Park & Entertainment
By dedicating more space for human-traveling instead of motorized vehicle, we could afford more public park and entertainment area.
