How about Escalated Wakway ? You stand and you are taken to the other side. No efforts needed

There are plans to use escalators instead of the usual staircase. Though, you cannot travel like George Jetson . You'll have to walk after you go up vie the escalator.

@ n_c. As far as I know efforts are concentrated more towards new skywalks in suburbs as there are lesser cases of protests there.

I guess its more to do with the fact that in a walkway - you need to FIRST climb and then decend.
Whereas in a subways its the other way round - descend first and climb later.

Although effort wise both are same, but humans prefer to delay this "effort" as much as possible.

Lazy and shortsighted humans.
*shakes head*
it has got to do with the number of steps. obviously elevated walkways have more steps since they have to go above the height of tall trucks whereas in subway only the height of people is required.
