And if we do want to add 20,000, 50,000, 100,000 residents over the next few decades, we need to think about ways to travel differently and that means traveling in higher occupancy modes whether that’s shared autonomous vehicles or more mass transit or more bicycling or walking. All of those modes take up substantially less roadway space than the single occupant vehicle.
