  1. What do we mean by equity in transportation? May I also humbly suggest that you kindly use your good offices and hold workshops and short trainings on transportation, for people like us in developing countries, for knowledge management, with full financial support. Thank you Kind regards, F H Mughal (Mr.)Karachi, Pakistan

    We will arrive at equity based transport via a process of natural transport evolution. Solo cars are no longer sustainable. Transport Equity will be created, ironically, by market forces – forces that created the disparity in the first place, through greed of a few.

    We see the force principle at work in Cyprus – tending to equity in wealth distribution, via radical appropriation of property – the market force that created disparity in the first place – through greed of a few.

    Most humans, by nature, are not greedy. However, throughout the ages, greed philosophies of a few have proved quite capable of causing temporary distortion and mayhem until harmony is once again restored by natural evolution.
