The future is here!  Online news clips are posting details about the upcoming changes in the way that the U.S. traveller will manage to and fro across the nation.  Expectations are showing how advances in technology will allow for more efficient levels of travel, while the almighty dollar still will reign supreme in regard to all who mean to take part in public transportation services!

Air travel is expected to be understood as an adventure that will cost money!  The airlines that provide any and every luxury to frequent fliers are expected to raise all prices for all services.  Fliers who regularly transport by plane are being prognosticated to become divided between groups of average travelers and “super elite” passengers, based upon the amounts of money paid to airlines, and the frequency of those payments from certain groups of air travelers.

Train travel will increase, as major rail transporter Amtrak already has reached an annual record of over thirty-one million passengers!  This major rail company is boasting record numbers of travellers, stating that it has had more passengers during 2012 than all of it’s time since it’s inception during 1971.  Rail riding will be enhanced by the increased use of upgraded urban rail systems within the nation’s major cities!

Attention is being cast, possibly with cautious eyes, to the upcoming options of self-driving automobiles!  Major automobile corporation Volvo has been experimenting with self-driving cars that are being called “Road Trains”.  These will be automatically propelled vehicles that will be directed through wireless signals sent from people at locations outside of the cars!  The self-driving cars, already taking to California and Nevada roads, are expected to make alterations and upgrades to the point where drivers’ licenses will not be needed by 2040!  Some predict that these vehicles without the need of human control actually could be safer than the usual person behind the wheel deal.  They could serve as reasonable transportation options for the handicapped, or even for the excessively intoxicated!

It is a changing world, a progressing world!  Technology is moving at ever-increasing rates, as society may or may not actually be ready for it all!  It is recommended that all who fly, ride, or drive to all designated destinations be prepared for the immediately coming upgrades to public transportation.  Once all of the technical issues are handled, and all legal issues are quelled, the way will seem to be clear for these ideas of the future to be presented as now!
