Seeing trucks and cars and busses that look so much like the ones we have today is strange. I'm trying to envision Picard driving a car to work at Starfleet HQ, or Scotty riding a bus somewhere. It's taking a little getting used to. I kinda like it, though.
I guess it means that IMDB listing for a meter maid was legit!
It makes sense really. They've never shown mass use of the transporters and using shuttlecraft probably only replaces what we'd use a plane for or to get to a spacestation. A car, probably purely electric, is still a decent form of travel and probably preferred by some. I would think they would use a lot of mass transit as well.
