As big of a shiathole as Northern New Jersey is, it's probably the best place to test this out.  Densely populated, progressive politics... hope it goes well.

I don't want to cruise around Trenton New Jersey, autonomously or otherwise, in the future, present or past.

Hmm. 100 vehicles, averaging 4-8 passengers each (let's call it 6), serving 90,000 people? Let's hope these 90,000 people all perfectly stagger their commutes.

Hasn't this been a thing in Arizona for a while now?

Trashed in, what, two weeks?

Darn. I was really looking back to enjoying doing it in the past.

NJ? The cars will be stripped and graffiti covered by the end of the first day.

An autonomous gadget-bahn. That's a new wrinkle in transit.

I was born yesterday
When they brought my Kamakiri
When they handed me the keys
It's a steam-power 10
The frame is out of Glasgow
The tech is Balinese
It's not a freeway bullet
Or a bug with monster wheels
It's a total biosphere
The farm in the back
Is hydroponic
Good, fresh things
Every day of the year
Good, fresh things
Every day of the year

With all screens and functions
In sync lock with Tripstar
This cool rolling bubble
Is all set to samba
This route could be trouble

Trans-Island Skyway, Donald Fagen
