M-Blem - personal railway transport for megacities

In any large, and not only city, there will certainly be a huge amount old railway linesthat are unlikely to ever work for its intended purpose. It is them that the French company HeHe proposes to use as the basis for creating a fundamentally new urban transport network - M-Blem.

In Paris, where the office of HeHe design studio is located, which deals with urban issues, from the thirties of the twentieth century there has been an abandoned ring line of the railway - La Petite Ceinture (Small Belt). For many decades, it was one of the main transport arteries of the city, but with the development of the subway its importance came to naught, so by now this line has become overgrown with dense vegetation, and in many places it has been destroyed. But a project called M-Blem offers La Petite Ceinture a new life.

M-Blem is a new type of urban transport that has no analogues in the world. It provides for the launch of several hundred small wagons on the ring railway, which can accommodate a maximum of two adults.
The M-Blem cars will drive along the ring line one after another with a slight backlash, slowing down at stops to drop off passengers and pick up new ones. The system will be fully automated - no drivers, a computer should be responsible for the stable operation of this type of transport.

At the same time, HeHe Studios offers to mark M-Blem stops in the same way as metro stations - with the luminous letter M.
HeHe is confident that M-Blem-type systems can be deployed not only in Paris, but also in any other city where there are non-operating railway lines. This will give new development to both the settlements themselves and the areas along which this unusual transport system will pass.
