While companies like Google and Tesla predict a future where fleets of vehicles pick up and drop off passengers, one glaring omission in this big city ride-sharing utopia is buses. You know, the things that already do what those companies are talking about.According to the American Public Transportation Association, on an average weekday, New York’s MTA logs more than 2.5 million bus rides. Even car-loving Los Angeles manages over a million rides a day. As a vital part of any city’s transportation system, these coaches connect folks with their jobs, school and shopping. While the idea of a single-passenger autonomous vehicle taking people to and from work is a stressed-out commuter’s ultimate fantasy, for major thoroughfares a bus still makes more sense than a bunch of pod cars.
