      Bus Roots in New York City. The bus pictured is the BioBus, with its rooftop garden. As designer Marco Castro Cosio said: A public transit bus has a surface of 340 ft2. The MTA fleet has around 4,500 buses. If we grew a garden on the roof of every one of the 4,500 buses in the MTA bus fleet, we would have 35 acres of new rolling green space in the city. The equivalent to four Bryant Parks. Good idea? YES!

      bus roots - green roof on city bus

    • Suzanne Reeves

      "Bus Roots! Utilize the space on top of buses! The first prototype has been installed on the roof of the BioBus. It is the first bus with an extensive green roof system. It has been growing for five months travelling around New York City and as far as Ohio, so far." -RP via Sustainable Cities Collectived

      Fans of the WHO Farm Project will enjoy Bus Roots, a green roof system designed for buses by Marco Castro Cosio. Ethereally speaking, it grounds the urban, metallic inflexible atmosphere of modern transport with the essence of nature. Logically speaking: it’s a heavy metal roof garden on a bus.

    Love the charming green roof! You can create something similar in your home with vertical indoor gardens, here's more info:

    Roof top...well since the cottage did not get a new roof I could do something this wild....but I think it would be too much trouble in reality so I will just enjoy the picture and hope you do also.

    A green roof, which is basically a giant raised-bed garden placed atop a roof, can help cool the air, insulate the interior of your home, and even provide extra room to garden in urban areas where space is at a premium.

    green roof on the smallest roof. great idea - imagine how much space is available ,,,,,

    Little garden shed with planted roof (for Graham's Project)

    Brilliant idea! Green roof for bus shelters - bringing some greening into the cities.

    I'd rather live in the mountains. But if I must remain in society this would be a lovely retreat
