Schweebing Around

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Check out this Reuters video, which shows a New Zealand transportation innovation, the Schweeb, an see-through capsule carried on a monorail. The occupant pedals, bicycle-style, to move it forward. The inventor thinks it's a pollution-free solution for crowded cities. "Schweeb" sounds like a device from a Dr. Seuss story -- as in "... And next came the Mimbys, all riding their Schweebs..." I'd like to try it, but couldn't imagine it here. The state's too broke to fix most of what it has now...

What a great video! I'm excited about this innovative way of travel. As Chicagoan expand its vision for Trails, this project can certainly be introduced in a host of communities. Even a select number of riverfront corridors will be great for this capsule like model. I'm excited! I will share with many others.
