Change, Whales in Monterey Bay and Transportation of the Future
With imagination anything is possible.
Can our "genius" central planners at Association of Bay Area Governments anticipate all the possibilities for the next fifty years? Our objection to "One Bay Area Plan" is based upon our optimism of the human spirit and innovation.
I cannot imagine a 19th century transportation concept of rail trains, with their fixed destination , costly infrastructure could begin to match the freedom and efficiency of these smart vehicles. In the Toyota video, we see a mock up of "self chaining" cars which will radically improve traffic flows during peak demands. Commutes will be a breeze. Below is the innovative "straddling bus" that will dramatically improve public transportation in cities .
The future belongs to the human spirit.
