Tiny Transit

Tiny Transit™ is about creating a dedicated, protected network reserved for vehicles that are relatively small and lightweight, with a maximum speed of 25 mph. Low speed and lightweight make Tiny Transit™ safe, affordable and efficient. The infrastructure is affordable, too since it allows increased capacity on our existing roads. Tiny Transit™ lets people “flow” without stopping at intersections, and without the risk of death and serious injury that exists on our roads today. Tiny Transit™ is new—and proven: virtually every aspect of Tiny Transit™ has been demonstrated to work somewhere in the U.S. or the world. Google’s self-driving car and the GEM are naturals for Tiny Transit™. It is a flexible and adaptive solution that provides a choice within the overall transportation network.

 Wildfire Adapted Community
A wildfire adapted community is defined by the United States Forest Service as "a knowledgeable and engaged community in which the awareness and actions of residents regarding infrastructure, buildings, landscaping, and the surrounding ecosystem lessens the need for extensive protection actions and enables the community to safely accept wildfire as a part of the surrounding landscape." The National Wildfire Coordinating Group definition, which was developed approved by the Wildland Urban Interface Mitigation Committee, is "A human community consisting of informed and prepared citizens collaboratively planning and taking action to safely co­exist with wildland fire."
