Top transportation technologies for urban dwellers

Getting from point A to B quickly and safely in the crowded confines of a large city requires a different set of skills and technologies than are required by the open road. Drivers must drive efficiently in conditions that are inherently inefficient. They must be aware of not just other vehicles, but also more fragile pedestrians and cyclists. Without spacious parking lots, drivers must cram their vehicles into tiny street parking spaces or cramped public garages.
To this end, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite transportation technologies for crowded city streets. “Why ‘transportation’ and not ‘car’ tech?” you ask. Well, you may find that sometimes the best way to get around is to not drive at all.
