35 Commuting Trends in August

From Electric Taxi Fleets to Running Track Trains

— August 27, 2016 — Autos
If there are two traits to describe the majority of the August 2016 commuting ideas, they would be speed and sustainability. Now more than ever, consumers are looking to travel in a way that's convenient for both people and the planet.

In order to help people see the benefits of taking public transportation, Transport for London is organizing gamified cycling events and underground subway art tours.

The future of public transportation is also set to become faster with innovations like the Hyperloop One system to connect Helsinki to Stockholm in less than 30 minutes and the High-Speed Rail line that will be developed between Malaysia and Singapore. In North America, New York City's subway system is also getting an overhaul that will make it much more tech-friendly for modern commuters.
