...you press a button and then a neighbour's unused self-driving car (opt-in) pulls out of driveway half a block away. Magic.

Even the Ford Inc. (the car company, not the exmayor) has enough vision to see this, since Ford has launched a car-sharing program to reduce your car bill. Now when they're driverless in the future, they'd self-valet to you like Ubers!

Eventually policies need to be done to optimize this (penalize empty vehicles going long distances, reward fuller vehicles and public transit connections). Once they're fully mature of course -- probably a few decades. Cities that do this properly will leap ahead.
