On this week’s episode of Technotopia we talk to Sarah Kaufman, the Assistant Director at the Rudin Center for Transportation Policy & Management. Kaufman is working to create new transit opportunities for New Yorkers – and the world – and expects the future to be quite interesting.

Her prediction? As we move towards self-driving cars we will see more options for paratransit – the services available for folks who can’t use public transit. These new services will get us all from point A to point B safely and quickly and, thanks to increases in efficiency, far more cheaply. Listen in to hear her predictions.
