It is true, the future is here. Have you ever thought about what it might look like? Well, it is not that hard, all you have to do is look around! There may be no flying cars, or no teleportation, but we are not that far off. Transport has changed tenfold in the last century. From people getting around on horseback to people ordering a taxi at the click of a button, how we get from A to B has never been more different. This can be quite overwhelming at times, it can seem alien from the outside, even silly. But, all of these advancements are for our convenience, so it is better to get on board than to be left standing on the sideline. This article is here to help in this regard. Provided are some of the main developments that the world of transport has seen in recent years. Buckle in (excuse the pun) because this is going to be a good one.
The Electric Skateboard
Have you ever thought of what it would be like to take up skateboarding? As a child, were you one of the kids who was always into extreme sports like skateboarding and bike riding? Not all of us were, and that is ok! Come on, think about it, who would like to face the risk of falling off one of those boards and fall straight to the hard ground? Not me, that’s for sure. Or who would like to have to push themselves around with their feet? This makes travel more of an exercise than it needs to be. Well, if you are one of the people who prefer to travel without expending too much effort, you are in luck, as there is now an electric skateboard. These electric skateboards run off of a battery that propels the board forward based on your movement. Think of it like a Segway, except it is a skateboard. This is a revolution in the world of skateboarding. Although we are yet to see any professional electric skateboard riders come up with tricks in the X-Games, we have seen a great deal of people take to the streets in these devices, and this number is only rising further and further!
The Electric Scooter
The electric scooter is similar to the electric skateboard. What was once a mode of transport that required the rider to work up a sweat in order to get anywhere, has now been transformed into an effortless vehicle that allows you to hop on board and go wherever you want. These scooters also work off of a battery charge. Many new firms have been set up that provide services that allow you to rent a scooter to get to a location that you are going. You will see these scooters scattered around many urban areas, waiting to be tagged onto by a rider. However, many countries have also banned these scooters as they have led to a series of accidents.

Perhaps the most influential of technological advancements yet to penetrate into our society is that of the autonomous car. It is only a matter of time until we are getting into our vehicles in the morning and telling it where to go. This will have serious implications for anyone employed in the transport industry.

These three ways are changing the way transport is being shaped in the world today. Advancements are a part of life, it is impossible to keep change at bay. It is important that we incorporate these changes into society in a fair way.
