A future transport project aims for zero tailpipe emissions from non-fossil fuel powered cars that are mainly unmanned and connected with each other. In this scenario, social status and private mobility will no longer be associated with each other. Rather the approach will be on-demand car sharing and carpooling to provide commuting in urban areas. Individuals will order the vehicle best fitted to their commute requirements, resulting in a reduced need for urban parking spaces and removing the distinction between public and private transport.
Transport between cities, both commuter and freight, will rely on new-energy-powered fast trains and bio-powered airships while international sea freight will be provided by high-speed ships powered using waves and solar energy. The goals of such policies will be to reduce oil dependency, mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality while continuing to maintain economic activity.
