In a world without the car

Today at work while I was daydreaming I thought about what it might be like if there were no cars or busses. Of course since I was spacing out, it wasn't logical, but rather just a few fleeting thoughts...
Forget the bus stop. There would be balloon stops. Swipe your MetroCard, proceed through the turn-style and wait for your balloon to drop down and pick you up.
Simply for convenience people would live closer together, and trains would be closer to their homes. If you place your bed near the window, you could literally roll out of bed onto the train.
Bikes would rule the roads. They would be used in place of cars for almost all trips. Wouldn't that be nice?
I love the picture of the couple leaving their wedding on bikes. If I ever get married I hope that I can do that!


Thanks for stopping by!
