Progress? The common car does not serve our needs in the increasingly urban environment. Single occupancy of four-wheeled full-sized cars is an obvious waste. We all need options. A vehicle specific to our needs. It is time we encouraged the market place to provide better designs for modern commuters. Appropriate modes of transport for people that value their time. It is all about getting from A to B more efficiently. A>>B will test and define the modes of transport that are tomorrow’s designs, available today. A>>B will create a link between the manufacturers, the customers, and the governing planners, to help us all understand our common needs and solutions. We are a global community in need of some sensible wheels…
HOW DO YOU GET FROM A to B?
