Getting from here to there (literally)

WOW… with over 24,000 cards played in 36 hours you all are almost forecasting at the speed of the hyperloop!

Speaking of the hyperloop – some of you seem as excited as I am by the idea – and figured out a way to make it part of UCSF’s future!

In an effort to better connect the campuses, some players suggested the low-tech solution, bicycles. This a great idea that gained a lot of traction, as seen by this big card chain. I doesn’t need to wait until 2025 to go into effect! Bikes would encourage physical activity and could be incentivized through workplace wellness programs.

But even as an avid cycler, I have to agree with the Elon Musk fans out there – the most efficient ways to transport people between locations in 2025 will definitely be the hyperloop!
So what could be done with the ability to travel super-fast between locations? gunit suggests students could receive credit by going to classes at other UC schools, expanding their interdisciplinary reach. and margesimpson similarly suggests dotting central California with UCSF satellite interdisciplinary clinics that serve as externship sites for students.

But maybe transporting people isn’t the best route, as pointed out by BrianB who advocates for improving the virtual connection between campuses instead.
