I believe the future of transportation is going to be "a few electric cars for the super-rich and public buses and stuff for the rest."
Stop living in the past and try using your imagination.
First Tesla car: The 100k roadster. 2500 produced, for the very rich only, everybody said it was doomed.
Next Tesla car: The model S - selling about 50,000 cars per year.
Now it's the model 3, there's half a million pre-orders, tesla is busy building 'gigafactories' to manufacture them.
See a pattern here?
Try letting the kids play on your lawn every once in a while. You might learn something.
