After Bill’s presentation Changing Cities – Changing Cars, Mary Allen of IT in Canada Magazine interviewed Bill Reinert about the future of personal vehicles.

As Bill Reinert, national manager of advanced technology, Toyota Motor Sales USA and one of the fathers of the Prius, explained, “a rapid transit bus with one passenger is one of the most ineffective ways in the world that we can move people around, and it’s the same thing with the train. Cars done properly can be an effective means of distributed mass transit.”
