Re: The urban transport solution for coronavirus and afterwards

I had my walk/bike everywhere days. Even at the age of 19, they generally sucked. There is a real limit on how much you can carry on a bike. I learned hands-free biking just to be able to carry more.

And..rain happens.

And...I was 19. Not everyone lives your urban paradise. Necessary stores are often miles away, with serious hills between. People age.

If you can walk/bike it, by all means do. But don't demand that everyone does.

Heck, I don't use a rideshare every quarter. That doesn't mean I condemn those who do.
