"Drive?" He Asked

While there are presently bona-fide hybrids available from dealers and a comparative handful of fuel-cell vehicles in various stages of development (from on lab benches to rolling around in small captive fleets), there is a question that some urban planners are asking right now, which is: Is U.S. society too dependent on cars and trucks for their transportation needs?

While there are presently bona-fide hybrids available from dealers and a comparative handful of fuel-cell vehicles in various stages of development (from on lab benches to rolling around in small captive fleets), there is a question that some urban planners are asking right now, which is: Is U.S. society too dependent on cars and trucks for their transportation needs? What are some of the other options (after all, people still need to get from here to there)? This subject will be examined in a two-day workshop/conference titled "going!" that will be sponsored by CalStart/Weststart in Boulder, Colorado, Friday and Saturday September 10-11. Among the scheduled speakers are Daniel Sperling, director, University of California's Institute for Transportation Studies, Rick Steele, CEO of ride-sharing company NuRide, author Phil Patton, and Gary Vasilash, editor-in-chief of Automotive Design & Production.
