  Autopia | Startpagina
Het Antwerpse stadsbestuur was niet doof voor de vraag naar ondersteuning voor autodelers en heeft vorig jaar al principieel besloten om zowel voor cambio als voor particuliere autodeelgroepen standplaatsen in te richten.
Autopia groepeerde de vragen van de Antwerpse autodelers en stuurde de vraag naar het Antwerpse schepencollege en het kabinet van schepen Ludo Van Campenhout, bevoegd voor Ruimtelijke Ordening, Openbare Werken, Stadsontwikkeling, Economie en Toerisme.
Autopia organiseert het particulier autodelen in Vlaanderen, cambio biedt in enkele steden het professioneel georganiseerd autodelen aan.

 Autopia was Disney's perfect freeway | The San Diego Union-Tribune
Autopia's survival is testimony to the persistence of an abiding dream of the ideal highway.
The Autopia idea of freeway driving might seem like a joke today, but it was a fresh and futuristic vision for Walt Disney in the mid-1950s, much like his devotion to the monorail as a transportation solution.
Employees are rumored to have driven Autopia cars to the studio of the Mickey Mouse Club television show, where they tried to persuade Annette Funicello, a favorite star, to hop in for a ride during breaks from filming.

 iowa journal of cultural studies
Autopia is further hobbled by its specific format: designed as a coffee-table compendium, with glossy pages and an impressive array of illustrations, it clearly assumes a popular audience whose level of education and attention span mitigate against specialized vocabularies and lengthy analyses.
While Autopia is basically a coffee-table tome, geared for a popular audience and thus filled with brief and largely undemanding material, Daniel Miller's anthology Car Cultures is precisely the opposite: academic in tone and orientation, it offers ten substantial scholarly essays examining the sociological and anthropological aspects of the automobile.
Unlike Autopia, its illustrations are sparse, though it does contain something of a "photo essay": Jojada Verrips and Birgit Meyer's "Kwaku's Car," which chronicles the piecemeal restoration of a Ghanian taxi-driver's jalopy.

 Disneyland -- Autopia (Disney Lies)
At that point, with the Autopia accident rate at more than 500 times the rate on the real freeways leading to Disneyland, Disney finally relented and had his Imagineers redesign the Autopia vehicles.
Most annoying of all to young hellions, a strip of cement now ran between the cars' wheels, preventing them from weaving out of their lane and forcing them all to travel in the same direction.
With these improvements, Autopia drivers were limited to ramming the car ahead of them for entertainment.

 Charles Phoenix: » Autopia, Tomorrowland, Disneyland, USA, 1956
Autopia is an idyllic, child-proof, junior scale freeway where sometimes reckless and inexperienced underage drivers thrill to the delight of driving a gasoline powered car, many for the very first time.
Driving those little cars were way better than driving a go-cart and the next best thing to driving a real car that you had to wait until you were a whopping sixteen to drive.
The word to describe the mound of earth that generally surrounds many of the Disney parks, and serves to isolate them from the “real world” is spelled berm, not burm.

 DLP: Autopia
Named the "Grand Prix Raceway" at Walt Disney World, Autopia is a car-ride along a slotted track, where the rider has some control over the speed, and can "steer" the car themselves, although ultimitely without interaction it will still follow the track around, and it's certainly not possible to steer the car off the track.
The theming is a ride in a "Car of the future", through "Solaria", though this is pretty much the same theming as when Florida's Grand Prix Raceway was first opened, so if anything the attraction's more a case of adding to the classical Magic Kingdom feel of the park.
The ride is sponsored by Mattel, and carries a minimum height restriction of 52" (1.1m) and a minimum age restriction of 1-year (accompanied of course).
