When you see simple ideas implemented you can't stop to wonder why it is not universal. This "Vorstellwagen" was first available in 1983 to ferry biking commuters between Stuttgart and the mountain town. It travels just 2 kilometers, but with over 200 meters of elevation change between the two stations and a maximum 20% slope. 1983 wow and still no luck. You have the west coast that without a thought would get this done. Who will be the first in the US.
