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. (http://twitter.com/schmangee/status/968151667396022274?s=17)

@schmangee I’d actually say the next big thing is the bicycle. Specifically – the e-bike, shared without docks. (http://twitter.com/kevinklink/status/968153389724065794?s=17)

If ever there were a strong rationale for improving walking, biking, shared vehicles this is it. Gasp at annual cost of parking in cities https://t.co/mIzaUaQkSG (http://twitter.com/rmchase/status/984028447835115520?s=17)

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. https://t.co/YMU6aMNcGh(http://twitter.com/CityLab/status/992369653342261248?s=17)

Don’t require helmets: While there were other factors involved, it is telling that the only large bikeshare system in the US to fail (Seattle) had to attract ridership in the face of a helmet law. (4/5) (http://twitter.com/JeffSpeckAICP/status/1070302008199036929?s=17)

Jeff Speck (@JeffSpeckAICP) tweeted at 6:00 AM – 5 Dec 2018 :
When Mexico City rolled out its Ecobici bikeshare program, it abolished its helmet law. Because bicyclists are safer in larger numbers, helmets don’t make riding safer if they depress ridership. (5/5) (http://twitter.com/JeffSpeckAICP/status/1070302009272819712?s=17)
