An example network in Hilo, Hawaii.
Counting walking, ticketing and travel time from the Blue Cross, areas in Green are 10 minutes, areas in Yellow are in 20 minutes and areas in Red are in 30 minutes. Black lines represent computer instructions on distances for calculating travel times, not precise routes.
This is 20 minute circles. JPods would be used for sight-seeing and local trade. ET3 deployed in on the same truss assemblies will cut the trip time between Hilo and Waimea to 11 minutes.
Life requires energy. Oil is finite so life and nations based on oil are terminal.
Less affordable energy, less life. Even without the oil supply shocks of the 1970, as gasoline prices increase people have more and more difficulty affording to pay for both their mortgage and commute. Building the JPods network in Hull my cut the number of cars a family needs and save families a car payment per month.
More images by Robert Therrien matching JPods technology to local esthetics. This network is primarily locally owned. Local interests will make the decisions.
