Significant access gains can be made—independent of any land use changes—by "changing urban streets to prioritize human-scaled transport", argue two leading transportation scholars. There are many connections to urban tech. First, new kinds of small, personal EVs and AVs will create demand for protected right of way. Second, new kinds of data areneeded to understand and manage these traffic flows).
This points towards a radical expansion of tactical urbanist approaches, perhaps using planning tools and technologies to produce large-scale transitions in street uses simultaneously.
