Four short stories will be used to illustrate how physics and imagination can be used to diagnose and remedy some of the critical urban mobility problems that are faced today by some of the worlds megacities. The stories have in common that they address important problems in new ways, and that their central ideas can be described intuitively to the non-specialist using elementary physics principles. The talk will also discuss how the stories have influenced the direction in which Chinas urban mobility is being developed.
