What Uber and Tesla and Google wont tell you about self driving cars [View all]

They are now locked in a battle with public transit agencies as autonomous vehicles actually dim prospects for less congested roadways in cities.

We could soon see public money being diverted away from far more efficient people moving transit options of fixed route rail and buses in favor
Of autonomous vehicles.

I am not saying there is no place for autonomous vehicles,’but we really need to push high speed rail, light rail lines and more heavy rail
Commuter lines if we’re to make serious progress toward zero emissions.

I am saddened by the death of the woman in Arizona struck by Uber vehicle, but I hope this incident gives us pause about what we’re doing with our transportation choices.
