We've seen the likely results via ride-sharing. Autonomous vehicles will increase traffic and gridlock making rapid transit even more important.This is why we must halt investment in transit. Any fixed-route, rail-based transit we build now will be obsolete in a few short years. As self driving cars (ride-hailing and ride-sharing) make roads more efficient and cheaper to use, transit will be without purpose, and all that money will have been wasted.
This! Why does it matter how the car is driven if we all still want a private car to take us somewhere?
That need only count of our communal ignorance of the past and present.
Ugh, when I see this I just want to get onto my 1969 Triumph motorcycle with nothing but magnetic and mechanical electronics. I am so glad I got to live a good part of my life before everything went digital and surveillance capitalism.
