“Birmingham isn’t a big city at peak times”: How poor public transport explains the UK’s productivity puzzle | CityMetric
Our hypothesis is that, by relying on buses that get caught in congestion at peak times for public transport, Birmingham sacrifices significant size and thus agglomeration benefits to cities like Lyon, which rely on trams and metros. This is based on our calculations that a whole-city tramway system for Birmingham would deliver an effective size roughly equal to the OECD-defined population.

Why Giant Airships Could Be a Trillion Dollar Industry
Incredulous? You should be! Wisdom has a knee-jerk skepticism of all manner of large claims. That was my initial reaction too, when I first heard this pitch years ago. If this were such a great idea, someone would have done it already, is a lazy and complacent attitude to take, but it’s often right. But try to justify your skepticism. Obviously, I’ve left a couple of placeholders for future argument: I need to justify my 5-10¢ per ton-mile figure, for example. What else am I missing? Try to articulate the reasons for your instinctive doubts. You might find them harder to defend than you think.

If giant airships become a trillion dollar industry, that will affect practically everything. A lot of company founders and early stage investors will become very, very rich, the Jeff Bezoses of the second half of the 21st century maybe. Some industries, and some regions, will face devastating competition, while others will face brilliant opportunities. A lot of relative prices will shift, and more of them will shift favorably than unfavorably for most people, because technological progress is a positive-sum game. Jobs will appear and job descriptions will change. Industries upstream and downstream from airships will grow. I wouldn’t rule out the possibility that giant airships could be important enough to non-negligibly lift the global rate of return on capital.

So it’s important to know whether a trillion-dollar giant airship industry is really a possibility, and if so, to make it happen.

The Bike Share War Is Shaking Up Seattle Like Nowhere Else | WIRED
Yet the willingness—even eagerness—of Seattle's three dockless bike sharing companies to enter into expensive and restrictive agreements with the University suggests that another way is possible. Instead of squeezing into gaps between the rules, these companies are entering into operational and financial partnerships with a jurisdiction, albeit a small one.

Should You Ride an Electric Scooter? - The Atlantic
What became clear in those first few days—and what I’m a little shocked to be writing now—is that electric scooters are a novel mode of transportation. They unite many of the best elements of traveling by car, bike, and foot. Like cars, they have an engine, so you can get to work without getting sweaty. Like bikes, there isn’t really road congestion, so you can travel faster than most cars can. And like walking, they let you spend your commute outside.

Cars and second order consequences — Benedict Evans
However, it's also useful, and perhaps more challenging, to think about second and third order consequences. Moving to electric means much more than replacing the gas tank with a battery, and moving to autonomy means much more than ending accidents. Quite what those consequences would be is much harder to predict: as the saying goes, it was easy to predict mass car ownership but hard to predict Wal-mart, and the broader consequences of the move to electric and autonomy will come in some very widely-spread industries, in complex interlocked ways. Still, we can at least point to where some of the changes might come. I can't tell you what will happen to car repairs, commercial real-estate or buses - I'm not an expert on any of those, and neither can anyone who is - but I can suggest that something will happen, and probably something big. Hence, this post is not a description of what will happen, but of where it might, and why, with some links to further reading.

London Cycle Lanes Blamed For Congestion - CityLab
This new traffic does indeed have less road space allotted to it than previously. That’s partly thanks to new bike lanes, as well as the the elimination of rat-run short cuts and construction-related road closures. If pollution is to be cut, the answer must surely be to reduce the number of motor vehicles on this network rather than to enlarge it and thus induce traffic. With London’s road congestion rising even as private car numbers fall, the city is going to need some smart solutions to manage an unforeseen set of circumstances. As long as the public debate is commandeered by anti-change voices making inaccurate complaints about better bike infrastructure, that’s unlikely to happen.

The Economist explains: Why billions of dollars of goods are stuck at sea | The Economist
There is an easy way out of the crisis in shipping. If enough lines scrapped their ships, the amount of spare capacity in the industry would fall, and freight rates would rise to a point where firms in it would break even. But they are loth to do this. For stronger players such as Maersk, building more big ships means that freight rates fall faster, pushing weaker competitors out of business. And many smaller lines cannot afford to scrap their ships. Low steel prices mean that they would need to declare big losses on their balance sheets if they scrapped them. Although a restructuring plan mooted for Hanjin would result in an 85% reduction in its fleet, almost all the ships it would get rid of will continue operations under the flags of other carriers. Until some serious scrapping takes place, do not be surprised if more shipping lines declare bankruptcy.

The Third Transportation Revolution – Medium
Or look at San Francisco, where the historic Ferry Building was blocked for decades by a two-level freeway. Since locals couldn’t really get there, it became a rarely-visited office building. But when the road was damaged by an earthquake in 1989, the city saw an opportunity. Instead of rebuilding the space for cars, it tore down the highway and reimagined the area as a place where people could gather. Shops, restaurants, and cafes were built, and before long the Ferry Building became the focal point of the San Francisco waterfront. Every weekend, almost 25,000 people visit its farmers market and support local vendors. As a result, new neighborhoods emerged, and within five years, there was 51% more housing available in the surrounding area.

The Advocates’ Resource: Evidence you’ll need to build a case for cycling in your area – Cycling Industry News
A bicycle business news site dipping into cycling advocacy – what’s that about, you ask? The industry has been called upon to turn advocate by numerous prominent stalwarts, so here’s our effort – a resource for active travel advocates to freely use in order to win over their local authority when it comes to providing safe cycling and more livable spaces.

And of course, at the time of writing, cycling for transport also presents the trade with its greatest scope for product development and, crucially, sales worldwide. The link between the creation of safe cycling infrastructure and increase in uptake is conclusive, so we tend to agree that everyone in the industry should take an interest in campaigning.

Cars or Trains: Which Will Win the Commuting Future? |
There’s no such thing, in my view, as a bad infrastructure investment. But there’s only so much money to go around. The decisions on infrastructure investment, when it comes to issues like urban economic productivity and reducing congestion, should focus on how to get the best bang for the buck. That can mean thinking more about the future and how patterns of work will shape what we need from transit systems, and working back from that to identify the best solutions.

Best World Cities for Traffic: Dallas-Fort Worth, Kansas City, Indianapolis and Richmond |
The 2015 Tom Tom Traffic Index shows that Dallas-Fort Worth has the least overall congestion among world (urban areas) with more than 5,000,000 population. The Tom Tom Traffic Index for Dallas-Fort Worth is 17, which means that, on average, it takes 17 percent longer to travel in the urban area because of traffic congestion.

The Tom Tom Traffic Index rates traffic congestion in nearly 300 world cities. This article examines overall traffic congestion levels in two categories of cities, those with more than 5,000,000 population and those with between 1,000,000 and 5,000,000 population.

Can Sadiq Khan stand up to bike bashers and make London a cycling city? | Guardian Sustainable Business | The Guardian
It’s hard to be sure if Sadiq Khan will be as bold as Johnson. The new mayor talked during the election of boosting cycling, but faces small but noisy opposition to new bike routes, with the likes of actor Tom Conti talking in apparent seriousness of parts of north London being “destroyed” by a proposed new cycle superhighway.

My feeling is such dinosaurs are fighting a losing battle. Every time a decent bike lane is built in London it fills up faster than the designers ever expected. The city could transform faster than people believe – the head of Denmark’s cycling union talks of private cars being unknown in Copenhagen within a couple of decades.

Bike lanes study shows support for new routes across ages and political views | Environment | The Guardian
There is strong backing in Britain for more cycling infrastructure, with support firm across all ages, political backgrounds, social classes and commuter types, according to new data from British Cycling.

The findings come from a major YouGov poll carried out for British Cycling. The main results, released last month, showed 71% of Britons back building cycle lanes on main roads, against just 18% who oppose this.

However, new analysis from the poll findings show how broad this support is. There was at least 50% support for more bike lanes among all types of commuter – car, public transport, cycling or walking – even if the theoretical bike route might cause a five minute delay on their journey to work.

Intercity Buses: 2015 Was A Smooth Ride |

In 2015, the trend was for fast-growing brands such as BoltBus, Greyhound Express, and to pivot from investing in new routes to investing in conveniences for quality-minded travelers, in a bid to woo them from cars and planes. Another major surprise has been the resurgence of Chinatown lines, some of which had been written off as dead after federal safety crackdowns several years ago.

Welcome to the Metastructure: The New Internet of Transportation | WIRED
Individually, the new tools and technologies for moving around are interesting; put them together and you get something profound. Connect these new systems and individual networks to each other and they self-­assemble into a transportation super-­network. It’s decentralized, offers multiple routes from node to node, carries any kind of person or thing to any kind of place, and adjusts itself in real time.

Sound familiar? Of course it does. That’s how the Internet works. (Remember when it was called the information superhighway? It’s like that, but for actual highways.) This decentralized approach to remapping our physical roads is fundamentally (and finally) changing everything about how we get around. Bus, train, ferry, Lyft, self-­driving car, hyperloop, or a combination of all of these things—it doesn’t matter. Think of it this way: To the new transportation supernetwork, you and I are just data. It doesn’t matter where we want to go; it just knows how to get us there—faster, cheaper, and utterly in control.

The Race to Create Elon Musk’s Hyperloop Heats Up - WSJ
It would be easy, then, to think we’re watching the creation of a fifth form of transportation, or a Silicon Valley disruption of mass transit, or a startup pissing match over the brass ring of Elon Musk’s funding and approval. But there’s more at stake for Musk. By writing Hyperloop Alpha, Musk was essentially asking America, “Do you really want to be the country that spends $68 billion to build the slowest high-speed train in the world?” To ask that question, Musk had to give the Hyperloop idea away. 2016 may be the year he gets his reply.

If the sum total of China’s commitments are taken at face value, the new Silk Road is set to become the largest programme of economic diplomacy since the US-led Marshall Plan for postwar reconstruction in Europe, covering dozens of countries with a total population of over 3bn people. The scale demonstrates huge ambition. But against the backdrop of a faltering economy and the rising strength of its military, the project has taken on huge significance as a way of defining China’s place in the world and its relations — sometimes tense — with its neighbours.
