Be nimble, be quick.

"Nimble Cities" wants YOU!

Today’s your last chance!

“To do what?” you ask.

To show the world you’re a genius.

You can do that by submitting your entry to Slate’s “Nimble Cities” contest, an alternative transportation advocacy project, which asks contestants to share “the ‘flash of genius’ that does for traffic what the intermittent wiper did for windshields.”

The guy who seems to be leading the “Nimble Cities” charge is Tom Vanderbuilt, who is:

I feel like I could quote every word good Mr. Vanderbuilt writes, so you better just go read some of his stuff, and here’s some more

Getting back to the project, all solutions are encouraged—big and small, from complex insurance schemes to formalized hitchhiking. Unfortunately, I’m giving you the heads-up a little late in the game, but there’s still time! So go ahead:

Share your bright idea on “how to move the most people around and between cities in the most efficient, safe, and perhaps even pleasurable manner.”

Give Ranger Cyrus’ skyhigh bikeways and EK’s match.com-esque ride-share a run for their money with your incredible, earth-altering idea.

If you don’t submit your own idea, better vote for No Car Go’s personal transportation trainers!

Car-freely,
Amy
