What if a bus stop could save your life? This ‘what if’ example is just one of the provocative ideas posed as part of the design studio competition ‘Interchange of the Future’. This paper will outline the interdisciplinary framework, design thinking and soft-systems methodologies employed in this design studio to open the public transport design space to new and innovative possibilities. Drawing on the project outcomes, the paper will further argue that in re-thinking normative understandings of public transport environments through the frame of twenty-first century urban digital culture, including the integration of new, and emerging urban digital media and sustainable technologies, design possibilities can extend to encompass alternate business and revenue models, new functions, and overall enhanced customer experience.
