What’s the future of DFW traffic? Will Hyperloop, high-speed rail, flying cars prevail?

North Texas leaders are convinced that technology will be the answer to many of the region’s future traffic jams.

But which technologies will emerge as true options for Dallas-Fort Worth commuters of the future? Driver-less cars? Uber air taxis? High-speed rail? Hyperloop tubes?

Because today’s leaders can’t yet predict which of these transport modes will emerge as a traffic solution, they’re making plans for all of them…

Morris said that as North Texas approaches a population of 8 million people, the region is reaching a “tipping point” at which building more highway lanes will have to take a back seat to higher-tech transportation alternatives.
