Metro's Future: A Bigger Conversation


Throughout November our intrepid team of Co-Researchers captured and shared their journeys on the Tyne and Wear Metro, discussed the important issues to consider in designing the new Metro train fleet, and developed ideas for new Metrocars. At the fourth and final design workshop, we agreed the main issues and ideas that the Co-Researchers wanted to feed back to Nexus and discussed how these issues and ideas could be used to continue a bigger conversation about Metro’s future in early 2017. The Metro Futures website is the forum for this conversation, and the Co-Researchers’ findings are now available for others to view, rate, and add their own comments. Over the coming weeks new features will be added to the site, beginning with the ability to explore ideas overlaid onto 360 degree images of current Metrocar interiors. Watch this space!
