It’s time we design cities for the human, not for the automobile…. [The podcar] creates the perfect blend between the privacy and autonomy of the automobile with the public transportation aspect and, of course, it uses clean energy.
It is operationally and economically unfeasible…. In the city, if you have that much demand, you could build these guideways and afford the millions it would take, but you wouldn’t have capacity. In the suburbs, you would have capacity, but the demand would be so thin you couldn’t possibly pay for those guideways, elevated stations, control systems and everything else.
