Finding a parking spot is hard but just wait – it could get nearly impossible. In roughly 15 years, parking could be non-existent. According to the Boston Globe, Kent Larson, director of the City Science Initiative and the Changing Places group at the MIT Media Lab believes that is exactly the case. At a recent HUBweek panel, the Larson shared his theory that public parking will not be a thing in the future.
Larson believes that with bike-sharing systems like Hubway and ride sharing businesses like Uber, we will eventually give up cars completely. Other cities in the world like Oslo, Amsterdam, Helsinki are already embracing this concept.
What do you think? Will Southie give up its cars?
