An interview with the authors appeared in Thinking Highway’s supplement Tolling Review. The End of Driving, Grush Niles, Intertraffic 2015. Provides an introduction to our work regarding preparation for massive vehicle sharing. Niles, J., Connected, Automated, Zero-Emission Cars Are Essential for Improving Livable, Sustainable Communities (2014). ITS World Congress Grush, B., Social Evolution and Road Pricing (2014). Thinking Highways. The social evolution of automobility opposes the network and economic optimization logic we use to promote road pricing. Robotic vehicles provide a way out of this problem. Grush, B., Kiss your bus goodbye (2012). Traffic Technology International. Loved by many planners, the urban transit bus is outsized, ungainly, disdained, and underused. Its function is critical for cities but its physical and network form is increasingly undesirable…it won’t be needed much longer… Grush, B., Turn the corner (2011). Traffic Technology International. Changing expectations and rapidly developing technology means we need to review ITS research strategies constantly. Is it time to think about relative investments in the development of in-car versus roadside instrumentation? Prescient, if you think about Google’s recent position on autonomy. Grush, B., Disappearing Act (2011). Traffic Technology International. Statistical VMT evidence from some of the world’s most congested countries clearly points to declining car use. Bern Grush analyzes whether this is a short-term blip or a sign of things to come.
