US 130 RN 2 - The Innovators and Motivators in the Transition to Sustainable Transportation
innovative, environmentally friendly transportation options that are suited to local requirements
The cutting edge of EV innovation is battery technology. Numerous present restrictions
should be addressed by advances in energy density, quick charging, and prolonged longevity
(Brown, 2021). Predictive maintenance and AI-driven traffic management are improving
efficiency and user experience in public transit. Additionally, green infrastructure efforts are
bridging the gap between transportation and environmental conservation, such as solar roadways
and vertical gardens on transportation hubs (Green, 2017).
The way ahead, nevertheless, is not without controversy. There are concerns regarding
the effects of EV battery manufacturing and disposal on the environment (Green, 2017). Safety
and ethical concerns are at the center of the ongoing discussion of fully autonomous versus
human-driven vehicles (Roberts, 2021). Hybrids provide a compromise, but are they a temporary
fix or a long-term replacement?
Manufacturers and customers are being pushed toward greener options by government
regulations including tax incentives for EV buyers and urban planning initiatives (EPA, 2019).
Automakers are being forced to innovate as a result of stricter pollution rules. This
transformation is also fueled by historical changes in transportation, societal preferences, and
shifting cultural perspectives. The transportation scene is changing as a result of urbanization
trends, the rise of shared mobility, and a decline in the importance of car ownership (Smith,
As a result of environmental and health concerns, cities like Copenhagen have changed
their streets to promote bicycle traffic (Larsen, 2016). Tokyo's public transportation system is an
