Transportation infrastructure and urban migrant workers are both deeply connected and disconnected to the functioning of cities, particularly in Asia. Migrant workers most often perform the on-demand delivery jobs of the growing delivery service industry, overloading and alienating transit spaces. The future of urbanism must embrace these rapid changes by expanding decentralized transit hubs and designing better living conditions for the people who have become our infrastructure; The transportation system can nurture a more efficient, enjoyable, and experiential urban environment.
