A UK initiative called ConnectingSouthwark.com is putting the green in public transportation with an EcoPod tram station that provides information and a great teaching tool for environmental responsibility. Made from recycled shipping containers and powered by renewable energy such as solar panels and wind turbines, the EcoPod is a great symbol of the green principles underpinning both the tram and its recent regeneration program.

As part of the strategy to connect South and North London, the Transport for London [TFL] commissioned UK designers at WIRE to develop a new identity for their proposed tram system. The EcoPod is installed in the heart of Southwark’s flagship regeneration area, Elephant and Castle, providing information about the London Cross River Tram and the new Elephant and Castle transportation programs.
