14. For years the City’s plan to reduce GHG emissions from transportation has depended on efforts to move people out of single-occupancy vehicles into shared vehicles and buses, bicycles, and foot travel. It is increasingly being predicted that surface transportation will soon be dominated by self-driving, electric-powered vehicles owned by large organizations and rented to users on a ride-by-ride basis. Do you think this prediction will be fulfilled in the next 20 years? If yes, how should the City prepare for, and respond to this new transportation reality?

Habitat enhancement, carefully managed public access, compatible multi-use strategies, and targeted acquisitions of key links should all be addressed.
