'Three Revolutions In Urban Transportation' Sees A Driverless Car Future Between Yolo And Sacramento Counties

The effects of single-occupant cars on emissions and traffic congestion could now be compounded by driverless vehicles continuously awaiting pick up of passengers.

A new study from UC Davis asks what is need to prevent negative outcomes that could arise from zero-occupant vehicles. Academic researcher Lew Fulton is also the codirector of Sustainable Transportation Energy Pathways. He talks about his report titled "Three Revolutions in Urban Transportation" and how shared mobility could make the future more sustainable.

His goal is to reduce the impact of single-occupant vehicles with mixed-mode travel, which consists of combining shared rides and improved public transit.

You can find his GreenLight blog spotlighting the report here
