For future:

- Hyperloop infrastructure investments at legprop or Gov level

- Light rail investments at gov level

- Renewable Resources for public transit

- Fiberoptic cables for internet

- Development of "gondola" lines for public transportation (noting that cable/ropeways are being considered one of the options for sustainable public transit methods)

- Duckboats 🙂
