mass human movement...

The Bolder Boulder 10K running race just happened in Boulder, CO and one of the things I was most impressed with was the mass transit put in place to get runners to the starting line. It was called the "Run Ride" and it worked like the best of mass transit. You showed up without planning, and a bus was either there or soon to be there to get you along the way. The joy of driving is that it's on demand and you don't have to think or you don't live in fear of missing the bus. Just like great subway systems.

Perhaps the key is not huge buses, but lot of microbuses that run regularly. I know the cost component isn't in the bus but the drivers but perhaps this is an employment program that can make the earth better.
