You smart people who dwell here, give me some names (and possible liveries, if you feel like it) for some railroads that could have been.

human powered transportation that's more compact than a bicycle

No.1359315 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I'm currently looking for something that I could use to make 10-15 mile round trips in an urban area while carrying groceries or other small loads. Only problem is that I also want to be able to carry it in my rather small car, don't want to mount a bike rack, and don't want something that would significantly cut into my limited trunk space (so folding bikes would also be out of the question). Would a skateboard or foldable scooter be a practical choice for this or are there other choices I should be considering? I figure rollerblades are probably out of the question as far as practicality is concerned.

Honestly, American suburbs look really comfy to cruise around on a good bike.
Why does nobody else think this Way?

Philosophy in /n/

No.1359856 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Here is the thread for then great /n/ related philosophical questions of our age.
First of all let us ponder upon the great paradox of public transportation: How is it possible that it is the best, yet at the same timeone of the worst ways to get around a city? (Not THE worst, the worst way getting around a city is carrpooling with a bunch of sweaty fat blokes in a rickety Fiat 500 with a broken AC in the summer heat of August during rush hour),

Pro-transit Cager

Anyone else like me? I’m a cager who lives in the suburbs, I love cars, working on them, I buy Ford stock and use my truck for all my trips.
But I promote basically any kind of mass transit in America, especially on rails.
Less people in cars means less traffic and potholes for me. Long-term, it’s way cheaper for the public to run transit than build/maintain/expand highways.
I’ve read a lot of the pro-car posts here and I don’t think any of the cagetrolls actually believe anything they write they’re just mentally ill.
Suburbs aren’t even desirable unless the central city they’re anchored around is doing well. So there’s basically every motivation for a suburbanite to promote transit.

Discuss new infrastructure projects, big real estate developments, and project ideas.
Also discuss what your city needs to improve transportation

Could airships make a comeback as airborne cruises?

Imagine a cruise over the Amazon rainforest/Rocky Mountains with stops in various national parks
