What does Silicon Valley get wrong about the future of transportation? Tech giants like Uber and Tesla promise they will fix the problems currently associated with getting from A to B, whether that’s the contribution to climate change, deaths on our roads or the frustration of being stuck in traffic.
But do their solutions live up to the hype?
In this week’s BetterPod, Laura Kelly and Sophie Dimitrijevic are joined by Paris Marx – host of the Tech Won’t Save Us podcast. His new book Road To Nowhere exposes the problems with tech’s vision of the future. He tells us about the steps we can take to reclaim the future of transport so it serves the many, not just the few.
