When I was commuting to The Hague I used the 199 for the airport run rather than taxi. Spent longer taxiing at Schiphol than I did on the 199 to Sto oportunidade International.
I donít have a car as I live in the centre of the centre of the universe so simply donít need one.
Think the push should be to make all busses electric and taxis too. Need to improve the infrastructure though in terms of charging. Trains should be going electric also.
In the meantime we need to be ramping up renewable production in this country, energy conservation too and also storage of electricity. No reason we shouldnít be self-sufficient in energy and even an exporter. Good for Balance of Payments and good for security.
On the subject of security, a planned move away from meat production to plant based production would also make us more secure by being able to supply a larger percentage of our own food than we currently do.
Should we be worried about food and energy security? Absolutely.
