Mobility is the most critical issue in São Paulo today. The city’s traffic is rated as one of the worst in the world and public transportations does not suit the demand. Moreover, private car culture is very intense
in Brazil and the government’s policies of use private transportation reduction are highly contested by
part of the population. However, some citizens are becoming very conscious about mobility by supporting government political changes and also looking for independent ways to face the problem.
This project is a proposal for the future of transportation in São Paulo. It began as an understanding of commuter’s needs and the upcoming challenges of the hugest Brazilian city. Comuto is a service of point-to-point shared transportation that works through driverless vehicles and a mobile app.
