Cross-posted from streets.mn Good Ideas in Transportation – A Streetstorm
Ok, Streets.MN folks, this is a survey.
We bloggers are well known for complaining about things. Transportation seems to progress slowly, yet we know it can go faster.
Well, what are the best ideas in the transportation field? We don’t want to talk about specific projects, rather what are the “best” ideas, policies and technologies that are not yet widely deployed here. (Define “best” as you wish)
I will seed the list:
- Robot cars
- Time of Day Pricing
- HOT lanes
- Pay as you Drive Insurance
- Bike sharing
- Jitneys/Multiparty taxis
- Skinny cars
- Car-free zones
- Shared space
Please add more in the comments, along with rationales or advantages and disadvantages. In the spirit of positivity, don’t judge or say mean things (like “that won’t work” or “your idea is stupid and your mother is a taxi”) about other people’s ideas. The ideas can and should be original, so even if it has never been said or thought before, please say it here.
