A new research article on flying cars: ‘Are we willing to relocate with the future introduction of flying cars? An exploratory empirical analysis of public perceptions in the United States’ (Sheikh Shahriar Ahmed, Grigorios Fountas, Ugur Eker and Panagiotis Ch Anastasopoulos) has been published in Transportmetrica A and is now available online.
This paper seeks to identify whether the large-scale emergence of flying cars in the future can affect residence location choices, especially from urban to rural areas and vice versa. The findings from this study offer early insights into the travel demand, land use, and urban and regional planning related challenges that may arise after the future roll out of flying cars.
It really will be interesting to have flying cars, I once read an article about cable cars being commercialised and made available as a means of transportation for the general public to help reduce traffic congestion. We’ll all wait and see what the future holds.
