mostly for the west coast because theres going to be a earthquake and its doesnt get too cold.

it would be much cheaper with bikes and trains, theres rivers where replacing car bridges wouldnt be easy. gas wont last for ever too.

I like it, except I like to road trip and that would be hard with an electric bike. Maybe in Manhattan.

there would be a few cars but it would be hard to drive along with bikes. you can drive on bike bridges but only one car can go on it at a time because its narrow and its not as much weight so the bridge lasts longer. because people need moving truck's and they need a way to move there trailors

Electric cars.

Electric bikes are heavy, triple what a regular bike weighs. Have fun lugging that 50-70 pound monster on and off trains. They're also expensive, They take a lot of room. Bike takes about about much room as two people so you'd need three times the train capacity if everyone was on bikes.

long trains, some electric cars and lots of electric bikes for a non sprawling sorta dense city. it would work well but probably not for big cities like tokyo

And what/how will goods and services be provided if you are converting roads & bridges to non-car usage. On another note it will look great in a business office when everyone has to walk in the rain/snow to get to work.

there would be a freeway that goes around the outside of the city and if it snowed then you might want to walk to a train

Key Phrase "around the outside of city" , are you saying that all businesses are on the perimeter like a wall? Do the vendors show up at a designated spot, fill their push cart from the truck and take it back to their store??

Even Disney World transports it goods in vehicles but underground so visually there are no cars on the roads above. For large parts of the country When it Snows would be a more appropriate statement.
