It seems you are looking something to build an user interface. You
could do such thing in tkinter, for example. You would "move" cars by
redrawing them in other positions after time.

But besides doing these drawings, you will be doing a lot of math to
improve the transportation system. The drawings will be just a
representation of what you calculate, I dont see why it would be
important to do it in 3d right now.
