    Barcelona’s metro has MAJOR ventilation issues!

    “2 minutes to the next train” – it seemed like eternity on the platform and I thought I would die from asphyxia, the air was that thick.

    They have a good fast train service (Rodalies de Catalunya) but the timetable is a bit random and it is a challenge to work out which train is actually the right R1 train.

    Some buses are also fired from origins very far out of the city (i.e. Castelldefels) when they should be terminated at a train station for the trip in to town.

    Dear Jarret,

    We are an start-up from Barcelona developing a new multiple passenger ride-sourcing system. Our vision is to develop “the bus 2.0”, a new mode between a bus and a shared taxi, similar to Helsinki’s Kutsuplus project. We are very keen on understanding how our product can affect transit systems, car ownership and mobility patterns of the cities where we start working. Our aim is not to compete with public transport but to complement it.

    We are big fans of your blog and, considering you are in Barcelona this weekend, would like to invite you to have a look at our project. If you were interested, we are more than happy to arrange a meeting with you and hear your views on the future of mobility.

    Kind regards,
    The Shotl team.
