Delivery Systems to Optimize Public Transportation

One way we're reducing use of roads is by providing "delivery" mechanisms so that the things people used to use cars to do can now come to them at their home, either virtually or via optimized physical delivery. E.g., people are driving less to school since their education is "delivered" to them via the internet at their house. Physical goods like groceries can also be delivered, and even though there's still driving involved one truck driving to 100 places is much better than 100 cars driving to one place. This is one reason to subsidize/encourage continued development of delivery mechanisms in our cities.
