Pieces of Mail Handled | The End of Traffic and the Future of Transport 2015-11-042019-03-15 | David Levinson US mail volume increased for decades upon decades until the 1990s. And it started to level off in the 1990s (forming an S shape from 1926 to 1999) with the rise of email and the Internet, and then, since the early 2000s has fallen off a cliff (the beginning of a reverse S). Nobody today expects the number of letters delivered to rise in a decade’s time. This same pattern could confront the conventional automobile as we know it today.From Levinson and Krizek (2015) The End of Traffic and the Future of Transport.
