80% cut in CO2 emissions with 3 revolutions in vehicle technology

There can be an 80% cut in CO2 emissions if cities embrace 3 revolutions (3R) in vehicle technology: automation, electrification, and, most importantly, ride sharing. This report examines analysis from ITDP (Institute for Transportation & Development Policy) and UC Davis showing how 3R synergy provides 40% reduction in urban vehicle transportation costs globally by 2050.

 Ride-sharing and renewable energy sources are critical to its success.
