So to those that need a mini-van to move the family around, we say fuck you take the bus? What about those that want to go camping?
What if we can't find enough people that care to drive a bus?
At this point I have to include the disclaimer that this line of reasoning that I'm presenting for a post-capitalist context is *my own*.
I think the more *orthodox* treatment here would be that, during the proletarian revolution and immediately after there would be a global, *top-level* coordination of *all* productive and combative activity through the vanguard / vanguard party.
This would include some *mass scale* approach to mass transportation, which would -- in my thinking -- most likely be about the buildup of *rail*, which would be more *industrial*-centric (as before, too, during initial periods of industrialization), rather than more *individual*-centric, but it would be mainly for the *mass struggle*, to outmaneuver and defeat the counterrevolutionary forces of the bourgeois ruling class.
The *post*-revolutionary period -- humanity's liberation -- would most-likely *follow-on* from that revolutionary, highly centralized period of coordination, over all sectors of production, *but* I think there would also be the post-vanguard, post-revolution *freedom* for humanity to then *self-determine*, instead of *having* to stay with the organizational momentum from the revolution itself.
For the short-term, for your example, perhaps there could simply be a *non-commercial* coordination of all active vehicles, per locality, so that available minivans would be lent-out, like a library book, and any repairs would be up to those mechanics in a city-wide *pool*, over the pool of all active vehicles.
Today we're already seeing limited instances of driverless vehicles on the road, as for deliveries, so I think that vehicle provisioning and all driving will soon be *automated*, anyway.
