The year is 2025.
There are no cars – only public transport and bicycles.
Four-lane highways have been replaced by bike paths.
Pedestrians share the pavements with cyclists.
The air is clean (because the buses are electric) and the living is easy.
This is the future the Numtots want.
Predominantly millennials with a passion for public transport – urban planning and internet humour – Numtots’ interests intersect in New Urbanist Memes for Transit-Oriented Teens – the Facebook group from which they derive their nickname.
There nearly 100,000 of them discuss and debate their perfect city or transit lines in their area or perpendicular traffic flow and improvisational vehicle pathing.
‘Yeah sex is cool but have you ever fantasised about an infrastructure renewal program funded by the taxes of billionaires?’ is a representative Numtot fantasy.
