You know, I got to thinking the other day about why mass transit hasn't dominated the transportation market. At first I thought that maybe it had to do with not enough buses running or the bus schedules, but then I realized that even in the neighborhoods well serviced by buses, ridership is only a fraction of the population that could ride. So eventually I came to the conclusion that it's because mass transit has always concentrated only on moving people from point A to point B as cheaply as possible and with no frills...what if buses were spiffied up a bit? What if they were more like the travel coaches...if they had all the amenities? I think ridership would go way up, even if you doubled or even tripled or quadrupled the rates. What do you think?

Got ideas? Post them here.
