Here’s A Self Driving Car That You Can Use Today

Okay, it’s a bus. Not a car at all. Self-driving only in the sense that you as the passenger don’t actually need to put the effort in to do it. All those things you thought you might do in a self-driving car whilst it was on auto-pilot? Well you can do most of them on a bus too.

Of course a bus doesn’t have the same flexibility as a car that really drives itself, and in some localities they are never going to manage the coverage necessary to make them a viable alternative to a car. However the savings from not owning a car, travelling by bus and using a taxi for outlier journeys should be immense, not just for individuals, but for communities too.

So before we celebrate the success of any self-driving car we should measure its efficiency against the bus. Because technology isn’t always the answer.
