A flying saucer bus designed to reduce traffic congestion. An octagonal wheeled water craft invented by a Mexican lawyer. Underground airports. A monorail that looks like a giant Chevy Impala. A public escape pod for plummeting airplanes. 19th century pneumatic subways. Cruise ships with sails. Great collection of images at UC Berkeley library’s online museum of Transportation Futuristics.
Thanks David Huff.
