Every bus roof has a green surface on its top.
This mobile garden has been designed to enlarge the green space in cities. Marc Granen came up with the idea of using areas that already exist to create that green space, even if they are on four wheels.
The bus works as an air purifier.
If the green design covered 300 buses, it would equal a garden area of 6000 sq meters.
The designers‘ mission is to expand the green space in urban areas, increase the absorption of CO2 and give the city a new eco-friendly tourist attraction.

7-centimeter thick hydroponic foam is used as soil, being much lighter than any other natural material.
Many people worked on Phytokinetic ® because they trusted and believed in the project.
Its implementation is simple. The system is built with the latest technology that requires very little watering, low maintenance and can be adapted to different climatic conditions very easily.
PhytoKinetic ® meets all the requirements of the European public transport regulations.
“Urban green areas are crucial for photosynthesis, a process in which plants absorb CO2 and release O2 - vital for purifying the air we breathe. The lungs of a city must grow at the same rate as its population, but much-needed green areas are not always available. Phytokinetic has grown out of this supposition with the goal of delivering a practical and tangible solution. If finding new urban spaces for gardens is problematic, we can use spaces that already exist, such as the roofs of city public transport.“
