Congestion can solved by recovering $9 billion a year from the $19.9 billion a year traffic costs the people of Massachusetts. Once liberty to choose mobility solutions is restored, as specified by Massachusetts Senate Bill #1837, people will choose cleaner, faster, safer, and more affordable mobility networks.
Yearly traffic costs in Massachusetts are about $15.7 billion:
- $6.7 billion per year sent of foreign gasoline (link) ($2.40 per gallon).
- $6.0 billion per year on accidents (link).
- $3.0 billion per year spent on congestion (link).
Yet, radically safer and more efficient transportation is very well understood:
- Freight railroads average 476 ton-miles per gallon (link).
- The Personal Rapid Transit (PRT or podcar) network in Morgantown has delivered 110 million oil-free, injury-free passenger-miles since being built as a solution to the 1973 Oil Embargo in 1975. In that same period of zero injuries, 1.7 million Americans died on the government highway monopoly. Highway accidents are not accidents. Who they happen to is random, that they happen is a design feature of the highway network.
JPods networks combine the efficiency of railroads with the on-demand service of the Internet, the Physical Internet®.
