Future of Car Ownership

In a blog post on THE TRUTH ABOUT CARS website, the writer that goes under Bark M. wrote a fascinating post on This is how they’ll take your car away from you! 

Future Transportation Funding

o   When Columbus, OH won the $50 million USDOT award for building smart city infrastructure this summer, it was the only city at that population in the U.S. that did not have light rail.  Columbus city officials have already stated that Columbus will never have light rail now but instead will use the DOT grant money to prepare for driverless ridesharing.

o   Rural America has been relatively neglected when it comes to any Car of the Future Talk—this editorial states that light rail is so 19th century and that rural Americans should also be able to partake in carsharing and ridesharing opportunities – we’ll have to wait and see how that shakes out since carsharing/ridesharing is all about the numbers of people using the service.

o   If more cars are on the road due to carshing/ridesharing won’t that make the road less safe for all users of the road—and who will be paying for the infrastructure of smart roads if we cannot even fix our potholes now?
