Future of Public Transportation
Public Transportation built with tunnels and self driving vehicles
See my submission 'Root of the Problem' as a companion to this.
Austin needs a public transportation system that is convenient, affordable and efficient.Tunnels and above ground stations are the solution. Seattle has lots called park and rides. Those who are able to drive park their cars then take the bus into the city. Similar situation would be needed in Austin at each location. Along with people driving themselves there would also be a fleet of self driving vehicles provided by ford to take people where they need to go. With enough locations the people of Austin will be able to get anywhere in the city efficiently and less costly than owning their own vehicle. With a combination of "The Root of the Problem" and this public transportation system, traffic will be a thing of the past, accidents will be greatly reduced and Austin's carbon footprint will be significantly cut.
