They're the same trams. Most French cities all use the exact same vehicles, but each city gets a distinctive front cap snapped onto the front, so they all look unique.

there are many cool and unique streetcar/tram/LRT designs out there and they look great at photo ops but when they get on the road and the transit agency pastes every square inch of them with advertising that they go from cool to moving billboards.

A Wireless Electric Bus That Charges Instantly At Every Stop

Researchers at the Utah State University have tested an electric bus that does away with the arm and charges wirelessly through induction. The technology was designed by Utah State University's Wireless Power Transfer Team and the Utah Science Technology and Research Initiative's Advanced Transportation Institute.

- Here's how it works: on the ground at every bus stop is a plate that recharges the battery-powered bus each time it drives over it. The charging plate doesn't have to charge the battery completely. Instead, it gives just enough of a boost to get the bus to the next stop on the route. The advantages are obvious: zero air pollution and increased fuel savings. The system is now being commercialized by the Wireless Advanced Vehicle Electrification (WAVE), a Utah State University startup, according to Wired.

Can you imagine those rolling down the streets of DC :slob:

It would instantly change the perception of transit.

Self-Driving Pod Cars Are Coming to the U.K. in 2015

Read More: http://www.wired.com/autopia/2013/11...tonomous-pods/

Quote:

The U.K. town of Milton Keynes isn’t waiting for Google or General Motors to bring autonomous cars to the masses. Instead, it’s enlisting a fleet of 100 self-driving pods to run between the city’s central train station, shopping center, and office parks beginning in 2015.

The autonomous pods will carry two passengers, plus shopping bags, luggage, or a baby stroller, and will travel up to 12 mph in dedicated lanes inside the city.

The first 100 pods are set to take to the streets in 2015 as part of a £65 million infrastructure investment by Milton Keynes, with a full roll-out of the pods coming in 2017, when passengers will pay £2 per trip and summon their rides through a smartphone app.

The pods — similar to those used at Heathrow airport since 2011 — will be fully electric, with motors mounted at each wheel and charging handled by an inductive system set up along the route.
