Episode 107: Planes, Trains and Automobiles

By Smart City Diaries

In 1962, the Jetsons introduced us to the idea of the flying automobile. That simple vision of the future inspired generations of innovators to look towards the next big step in transportation. We were promised a glorious future of mobility that would transform the way we live, work and play. But here we are, 60 years later, tires against pavement, and an ancient public transportation system crumbling beneath our feet. What happened to our bright vision of the future?

That future is finally here! On this episode of Smart City Diaries, hosts Anna and Deborah Acosta discuss the stunning breakthroughs in transportation that lie right around the corner. From flying cars to Maglev trains to the Hyperloop, how will cities implement multi-modal infrastructure to adopt these new technologies?
