Description:

This site advocates less dependence on automobile transportation, and proposes suggestions for technologies and city layouts that would eliminate the need for it altogether. Some of the most interesting discussion concerns city topology, suggesting a six-lobe design. Each lobe is divided into many districts, and can support up to two million people (twelve million in all). A heavy-rail metro is the primary public transportation system, and average travel times are outlined. Venice, Italy is discussed as an example of a car free city. All of the information is very well thought out and supported with reasonable estimates and figures.
