When is our state government going to start embracing the new technology now freely available called the Stigobike, which is an instant-fold fully electric bike less than half the size and weight of conventional bikes? It is so small and compact, it is designed to go with the owner on trains (even in peak hour) with standing room only and then be able to hop back on the Stigo when the train reaches its destination? When is the government going to start embracing this next-generation technology and stop wasting millions building car parks, which are nothing more than monuments to backward thinking?

Interesting that WA is building more car parks when other developed nations are trying to figure out what to do with these stranded assets as the world move towards autonomous vehicles and ride sharing. A $32 million price tag for 600 car bays – $32 million could pay for a lot of local on-demand shuttle bus services to get commuters to and from the train station safely and conveniently.
