Do Androids Dream of Electric Cars?

Public Transit in the Age of Google, Uber, and Elon Musk

Publication Year: 2020

Author(s): Wilt J

Abstract:

Public transportation is in crisis. Through an assessment of the history of automobility in North America, the "three revolutions" in automotive transportation, as well as the current work of committed people advocating for a different way forward, James Wilt imagines what public transit should look like in order to be green and equitable. Wilt considers environment and climate change, economic and racial inequality, urban density, accessibility and safety, work and labour unions, privacy and control of personal data, as well as the importance of public and democratic decision-making.
