Sweden has been working on an exciting new technology, dubbed “The Future of Mobility.”
Imagine clambering into your gondola, only now you can stretch your legs comfortably in the roommate cabin. Instead of fighting reckless motorists and morning transaction, you can whip open your telephone or laptop, catch up on undertaking, or precisely zone out, and be sure you’ll show up at your end safe and sound.
And all of that without find guilty to the charges polluting the ozone.
It’s not only a fantasize anymore. Behold 😛 TAGEND
Yes, the future of transportation in Sweden is … a bus.
But it might not be as silly as it sounds.
The clever ad comes from Swedish public transport agency Vsttrafik, which wants to encourage more commuters to take the bus( or develop) instead of clogging the road with cars. In addition to the advertising campaign, Vsttrafik is also offering equestrians two weeks of free public transportation to show them how great it can be .
Obviously, public transport isn’t a good fit for everyone, especially those who live or work outside major urban centers. But according to a press release, Vsttrafik expects to gain over 5,000 new regular riders from the experiment.
Sweden hopes to be “climate neutral” by 2050, and becoming ever more vehicles off the road is a big part of the plan.
We’ve heard lots of small islands and isolated communities wholly wean themselves off fossil fuel, but for a grown person like Sweden to do it would be a massive feat.
One of the biggest challenges will be to cut the country’s carbon emissions about a third of which come from domestic walk, according to Vsttrafik . Frankly, it simply draws feel .
“A normal car in Sweden platforms still for 97 percent of its lifetime and for every vehicle “theres” eight parking space and many miles of road, ” said Sweden’s situation rector, Karolina Skog. “You can’t call that effective.”
Thanks, Sweden, for showing the countries of the world what climate-conscious plan should look like.
Not all nations accept the interests of its people and the planet can be served at the same era, but you have to wonder if they might be singing a different motif as the effects of climate change becomes more severe.
The more of us who are willing to get involved and( gasp !) maybe sit next to another human being on our morning commute, the very best hazard we have at is slowing this “runaway bus.”
