I completely disagree that the future of Philadelphia is all about trains.

The future for Philly and rest of the country in transportation rests with self driven cars. This technology is going to completely change how cities are built and where folks live.

Inga has an article today talking about how Uber has impacted mass transit. That is nothing, NOTHING!, compared to what self driven cars will do to it.

My guess, self driven cars are 1-2 car generations away (5-10 years). Add another five years for rapid adoption. hence, the transformational impact will hit during the 2030's.
