The standout trend is #6, “Mobility hubs and car-free zones”, discussed in several articles on TN. Banning cars from city centers and forcing people onto foot, bicycle, scooter or mass transit will be huge in 2020. This meme was originally hatched in the Agenda 21 program in 1992, but is now becoming a reality.
The editor of Smart Cities Dive contacted me that she is taking exception to the amount of text from their website included in this article. Even though I have the right, according to ‘fair use’ statutes, to include text that I review and make comment on, I am choosing to remove the bulk of their article, and thus you will have to go to their website to read it.
