"We have an idea for something which is not exactly a bus but would solve the density problem for inner city situations," Musk said, continuing that autonomous vehicles are key in solving this issue.

Musk has called gridlock "soul-destroying."
"There's a new type of car or vehicle that would be great for that and that'll actually take people to their final destination and not just the bus stop," he said, but whether that is related to ride-sharing is open for analysis. The planned Hyperloop would transport passengers between cities, but getting home from the station is another issue completely. Cities and their traffic problems also vary greatly, so it is difficult to say whether all traffic jams could be solved with Tesla's universal serial bus. Or whatever Musk is dreaming up now.
