What will transportation on a planet with 7 billion people look like? @Michael_GR looks at the big picture:

But my realist side tells me that even if there are positive trends, like urbanisation, which will lead to more than half of the 7 billion humans to live in cities where it is much easier to walk, bike, take the bus, etc... It still means that the other half will live in rural places where there's probably never going to be great mass transit, and where points of interest are probably too spread out to easily walk or bike (especially problematic in places that get very cold). So in the foreseeable future, there's going to remain a large fraction of the population that almost certainly won't give up their cars.
