The car-less development of Masdar in Abu Dhabi has introduced a new line of rapid transit as seen above in the area’s underbelly.  Each vehicle seats 4 and runs on electricity that plugs into charging stations.  Each 1.5 hour charge allows for 37 miles of travel.  It’s an interesting take on alternative transit.

Could this happen in Rochester’s tunnel?  Perhaps it’s a vehicle with a larger capacity that runs from one end to the other and stops at every intersection as identified in the last post.  In this manner, the tunnel literally becomes a distribution spine.
