THE NEXT BIG THING in transportation isn’t the Hyperloop. It’s buses.

The task at hand right now isn’t building a new big thing. It’s making the big things we’ve already built work better for everyone.

These things require humility and hard work and focus and leadership. (

@schmangee I’d actually say the next big thing is the bicycle. Specifically – the e-bike, shared without docks. (

If ever there were a strong rationale for improving walking, biking, shared vehicles this is it. Gasp at annual cost of parking in cities (

1/3 of urban driving costs are for parking (other costs also include time lost to congestion)

Oslo is still planning to go car-free by 2019, thanks to an ambitious network of bike lanes. But old habits do die hard.

Having #trees  in between #streets and cycle tracks can make #bike riders feel cooler, blocked from #traffic, and less exposed to #pollution. @CityLab (
