Baby, You Can Drive My Bus

On the list of things not to worry about in Grand Forks (unless Google buys the city as an experiment) is the idea of driverless vehicles.  I think one comment really nailed it:
The allure of a driverless car is that you can travel nearly door to door without having the burden of operating the vehicle or needing to pay attention to the road. However, that reality already exists. Its called a bus. When its below ground its called a train. An added bonus, you don't even need to find parking for it. Why is this news to people? Mass Transit is here and its real. And if we seriously commit to it, we can make it way more useful than any driverless vehicle ever will be. (dave "paco" abraham
