pizzazz? um, sure!

Apparently it’s been suggested that Toronto transit needs more “pizzazz”: um, yeah. Sure, we need themed buses and streetcars, comedians and bingo to make the trip more “zany.” How about finding people who have good ideas on how to make transit run better? In the past couple of years I have ridden on transit in Vancouver and in Germany, and they have: zone fares, ie you pay for the distance you travel, and little pixelboard signs at the bus stop indicating what EXACT time the next bus is expected.

I know, they tried zone fares in the 60s and people hated it. Well, it’s 40 years later, and there are more modern ways to keep track of paid fares these days.
