Research and Development Overview

In 2010 Google Inc. concluded Project 10^100 - a call for ideas for change. People from around the world submitted over 150,000 ideas that they wanted to bring to life. "Drive innovation in public transportation" was one of the five winning ideas. Google Inc. subsequently invested $1m in Shweeb to assist with transit research and development. In addition to this Shweeb partnered with Shweeb Can Corporation in 2013 to further advance research and development and work towards the production of a prototype transit/ leisure system.

The original adventure ride concept system is situated at Agroventures Park in Rotorua, New Zealand. See www.shweeb.co.nz or www.agroventures.co.nz.
