“The City and Borough of Juneau (/ËˆdÊ’uËnoÊŠ/ JOO-no; Tlingit: DzÃ¡nti K’ihÃ©eni [ËˆtsÃ¡ntÊ°Ã¬ kÊ¼Ã¬ËˆhÃËnÃ¬]), is the capital city of Alaska. It is a unified municipality located on the Gastineau Channel in the Alaskan panhandle, and it is the second largest city in the United States by area.”
See Juneau, AlaskaI was curious why, with the dearth of planned dealerships for the Electra Meccanica Solo in Canada, there is one planned for Juneau, Alaska. What’s with that?
A little reading gives some clues.
- Those folks are somewhat environmentally conscious having dropped the idea of building a road linking Juneau to the rest of North America.
- The city and surroundings are sprawling, so transportation is important and a Solo would have a very useful range there.
I think the folks in Juneau are a bit ahead of the rest of us, except for the roads part. Every city I know of in North America could use vehicles like Solo to create more space on city streets, reduce noise and air-pollution, and get people to where they need to go with much less effort (maintenance, maintenance and more maintenance). Saving money, of course, is another benefit.
