You're all too skeptical of super-duper self-driving cars, apparently

Re: Shills ignore Public Transit

Not arguing with you there. It's just that public transportation as we know it today, with fixed stops and so on, turns off many people. You're right that a ubiquitous, quickly-summoned car-for-hire, the kind that can only be ubiquitous enough with robo-drivers (otherwise, they'd be around today with human drivers), would change the perspective of needing to own a method of transportation. It's like with buying versus renting a domicile. Buying means an asset and assorted long-term benefits, but it's an anchor to an otherwise-transitory worker; renting for them is best because it makes it easier for him/her to move as work and jobs require. Just saying.
