Toyota LinkThe Toyota LINK is an affordable customizable, mass transit vehicle for students with high social networking demands and continuously evolving preferences.

With little-to-no disposable income, these students are now able to once again enjoy their commute in a world where transportation has become more expensive and less appealing.

Students can meet at various HUBs to pick up their LINKs. Once occupied, the LINK seamlessly links onto a transportation social network, allowing connections with other drivers to share the commute, trade music, or compare class schedules.
