Urban Planet: Boston packs up City Hall in truck to go

Boston City Hall has decided to take their services on the road. This truck—which used to be a SWAT vehicle—has been transformed to offer constituents a multitude of services. The truck will roll into neighbourhoods across Boston, where most of the usual services will be offered, including birth/marriage/death certificates and the ability to pay parking tickets.

While food trucks and pop-up fashion trucks have been on the radar for quite some time, the City Hall to Go truck in Boston is the first of its kind.

The truck will communicate its location via twitter: @CityHallToGo
