New Transit Recommendations

The ways we currently travel are inefficient. This is concerning because of shortage of resources and very high cost of living, and in the interest of connecting the world by ease of traveling and transporting aid in a timely manner.

Local commutes should be performed in non-petroleum vehicles. The renewable fuel and pollution rate of mpg for petroleum-fuelled vehicles is in the hundreds of mpg. Large fleets of vehicles receiving mpg's in the teens or twenties will not be sustainable economically nor environmentally and should not be used. To perform commutes people should use biodiesel, ethanol, or electric and assisted vehicles. Or electric busses, or use electric or electromagnetic trains. For longer trips people should avoid personal vehicles and instead rely on high speed trains or hydrogen scramjet flights.

These methods are the most cost effective, rapid, and environmentally sustainable forms of transportation, and due to decreasing resources, increasing populations, and measurably worsening environment, we must put greater and greater emphasis on these methods, in advance of economic indicators and apparent necessity.

In the meantime, all automotive and transit companies should work hard to increase mpg and switch their toolsets and companies to produce these new forms of vehicles.

It is recommended that all large engined vehicles including V6's, ethanol, and biodiesel engines, adopt settings to inactivate pairs of pistons based on vehicle need to conserve fuel. The industry standard vehicle weight should also decrease by about 300kg annually until passenger cars reach a weight of around one ton and other non-commercial vehicles weigh in under 1500kg.
