“You might think that if I were to look back, I’d say that the electric car is the biggest change I’ve seen. Tesla is a $50-billion-market-cap company after all — larger by that measure that Ford and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles!
But you’d be wrong.
Nor is Uber the biggest change I’ve seen. Nor the advent of high-end luxury air travel, low-cost carriers, or even a rising number of private jets.
High-speed rail? Not so much in the US. Flying cars? Nope.
By far the biggest transportation change I’ve seen is the explosion in bicycle riding.”
