How you found us: I google myself regularly
I still don't get how this is all that much different than the El. They say it doesn't require "dedicated lanes or structures," but it does. And it's not exactly all that user-friendly. It says it's not high enough to provide clearance for delivery trucks.
How stupid. I mean, if this were a novel idea that required some refinement I'd be like "hey awesome, this is a good start to a real unique solution."
But as it stands, it's just a sad and poorly executed version of things we've already seen-- elevated trains, double-decker buses, monorails, and street cars (which, by the way, had an interesting mention on CNN.com today).
