Transportation of the Future

This image is from the early 1900s, and is a unique look into what someone thought transit of the future could be. The photo shows many forms of transportation including a subway to Boston, a streetcar to Springfield, and a blimp to Mt. Ascutney.

What do you think transportation of the future will look like? Will the interstate still be a major form of transportation in 50 years? In 100?
