Looking forward to the first meetup of the “Intelligent Transportation and Logistics” meetup group in Washington DC! On January 23rd, the Intelligent Transpologists of Washington DC metro area will meet to talk about “Silver Line Metro, Parking in the City and the Meta Issues”
Checkout the group, and if live in the Washington DC metro area, consider joining us that day! And while you are on the group site, please take our poll: What should our tag line be?
And while we are on the topic, did you see the Scientific American’s September 2011 Special Issue on Better, Greener, Smarter Cities? One statistic that I have been told is that of an urban area’s traffic, 30% is simply the people looking for parking. That sounds like a REALLY large fraction. Is that really true? If it is indeed true, then sounds interesting just to guess what might happen if that traffic could be eliminated. I would think that with 30% less traffic, and with traffic displaying such non-linear phenomenon, the effect on a cities traffic would be very significant.
Yet another reason for the transpologists to get together I guess!
