Highly innovative systems of transportation (hovercraft, helicopters and the SST) produce low yields, and this will likely discourage heavy use of these systems. The evaluation of human propulsion (walking, cycling) and mass transit for urban areas should encourage consideration of these means of travel where possible and by: 9.   In January, it purchased Autonomic, a cloud-based digital platform for managing transportation systems, and TransLoc, a startup that builds software for streamlining urban transit.
