In the Netherlands the equivalient of 40,000 soccer pitches will become available as the parking space of the future will be less than 10% of what it is today. More trees providing shade and shelter for people waiting for their pickup. “It’s an evolution from an auto-oriented society to a more pedestrian-oriented society.” – planning manager David De La Torre of Chandler, the city hosting Waymo’s autonomous pilot.
