The City by John Backderf 199?
“The interstate highway system was never built? Where all cities are connected by rail lines. Much fewer cars in use. Less air pollution, no traffic jams, quieter places. No mass destruction of neighborhoods an countryside.for soulless highways. Now driving a car is a choice, not a necessity.”
Later you get sleak, fast jet-powered maglevs that go both below an above ground.Wouldn’t mind living in that world.
