We have to have transit! It is a necessity to live in a society today. For me transit is a way to get around my day job, and for some of us it has become more of a need. We all use public transportation, and it is convenient. A lot of us like to travel by bicycle or walking to get to or from work. It is a great way to get to work and school and get to know new friends.
The problem is that transit suffers from a lack of safety on the streets. Most of us use the same bus stop or train station we used 10, 20, or 50 years ago. I don’t think it’s necessarily a bad thing, but the number of deaths related to traffic accidents is on the rise, and there is a lot of fear that the current transportation situation will cause more deaths.
It is only a matter of time before the public gets used to the idea of biking or walking to work, and will start to expect the same in the workplace. The good news is that with the right tools and materials, you can build a bike or a walking path that is safe and actually attractive from a design perspective. In fact, the bicycle that is the subject of this video is a fully customizable design with a few safety features.
One of the greatest things about transit is that it’s easy to make a functional and safe bike that is aesthetically appealing. And when you’re talking about transportation, safety is the most important factor.
As a cyclist, I have to admit that I’ve had a hard time making my own design. I have a few ideas… but they’re all over the place. The last time I went to a bike shop to ask for help was because I wanted a custom frame for my bike. I also like the idea of building a simple bike that I could use for quick rides in the mornings or evenings.
When I hear the word “bike”, I think of the old, old time machine.
Yes. The idea of a bike that can take you from point A to point B in a snap is pretty cool and something that I would love to build myself. To me, bikes are about speed and efficiency and are something that you can go to the store and buy at a fraction of the cost than a car. I would love to see a quick, efficient way to get around with my bike.
There’s a lot of technology out there that might make that happen (or at least add some of that functionality), but the biggest barrier is simply the lack of availability. The transportation industry is still working on bringing in the last of the mass transit technology that would really make it happen for most people.
I would love to see a quick-thinking solution to this problem, but unless we have technology that works like an electric car, we won’t really get it. Our best chance is to bring in technology that would allow us to get from point A to point B faster and more efficiently.
The first step is to make public transit more accessible. We need to make it easier for people to take public transportation, and this needs to be done quickly because it may take decades for a solution to come to market.
