@pinkprius With autonomous cars and similar vehicles we actually can improve public transportation and even build a hybrid that has the advantages of public transportation and individual transportation.
@pinkprius to be fair, if those autonomous cars aren't privately owned (as in, by a single person), they can then go pick up someone else instead of just taking space on the street parked
doesn't work in the rush hour however, when everyone is traveling, so it doesn't really matter
@pinkprius I do not know where this montage comes from. But the picture actually show 60 cars and 67 people.
The text claims 69 people but that's not what I count.
@pinkprius d'ailleurs en parlant de ça, on m'a envoyé cet article ce matin : https://atterrissage.org/technologies-societe-durable-65514b474700
@pinkprius This, however, is *extremely* simplified. Though travelling by car might not be the only or best way of getting somewhere, there *are* valid use cases for it. 😉
The average vehicle can hold 4 people. This would be the space required to move 48 people who are all going to different places, but lots of people car pool, and I know I'm taking the word "required" too literally here, but this image should look like this.
I completely agree with the notion that riding your bike to work is environmentally friendly, of course!
"In the US, car occupancy, is near of 1.7 people per car, (against around 1.5 occupant(s) by car in EU)."
Let's say there are roughly 67 people on that image, they would use 40 #cars in the US and 45 cars in the EU.
Not 12 like you drew in your picture...
I don't think that saying how many passengers could these cars move isn't helpful at all.
Then "required" is *definitely* not needed in this meme, since it is talking about averages.
I make the same kind of mistakes with my English, because English sucks, but thanks for the clarification. I understand it better now!
@jaller94 I think the original picture, comparing cars to bikes and buses maybe was provided by the City of Vancouver
