Lots of new Transport Ideas flowing into the Global Ideas Bank at the moment.....everything from an idea for a practical city bicycle to a dashboard speedometer to bring home to you how damn fast you're going.
Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner, but my transport issues are all tube / city-centre related. Interesting to scan through the London mayoral candidates on transport then. You can see them all here: London Elects. The present incumbent, Ken Livingstone, is planning to follow up the success (?) of the congestion charge and increased buses with, amongst other things: "Tackle the air pollution that causes 1,600 premature deaths in London each year, making London a Low Emission Zone - with rigorous pollution standards for lorries, buses, coaches and taxis" and "Make travel on buses anywhere in London free for young people under the age of 18 in full-time education." Interesting ideas. Needless to say they're all planning to run the tube throughout the night or something ridiculous....although we'll be happy if it's just running on the day.
