The whole transportation sector is in for massive transformation.

The way that people and goods will be moved from point A to point B in the future will be completely different. I am not (yet) talking about a Star Trek style transporter, although scientists have moved matter at the atomic level from one side of a room to another, so we may eventually get there.

The transformation I want to focus on is much closer. Consider the future that the young children of today may experience. They may never own a car, or understand what it means to hail a taxi, or even rent a car. The next generation will find it odd that we used to put "gas" in our vehicles, and may think of driving a vehicle as something that you do in an amusement park. Imagine the future at Disneyworld, standing in a long line waiting for the new "1978 Camaro ride."
