‘City 2.0’: Where the TED conference just gave its $100,000 prize

It’s the city that transit planners dreamed about at the Rail~Volution transportation conference, the traffic system that includes smart technology that allows cars to talk to one another as the U.S. Department of Transportation is now testing, the city that can maintain a functioning Metro, a well-distributed and convenient bikeshare system, that has alternative fuels like autogas and electricity, that can balance a network of buses and Zipcars and streetcars skillfully and in a way that’s like ballet and not a train wreck of disorder.
