MIT take on smarter transportation

Defined here – a bit defeatist in my view…”Ideally, you build a city with clean, quiet mass transit and ban cars from the roads. But humans love their cars…” Lots of descriptions of whizzy stuff, leading to “a clean, quiet car with robotic wheels and extraordinary maneuverability.” To be fair, the scenario does include for some car sharing: “when you need a car, you choose one from a stack in front of your apartment building, swipe your credit card and drive away, leaving the car at your destination to recharge, then repeating the process in reverse to get home.”
