Public Transit Over Parking
The transit landscape for many people is changing. Increasingly, trains, light rail, buses, and shuttles are part of our lives, especially if you live in or near a big city. If this isn’t the case for your commute and everyday travels it’s likely the case for you when traveling in other countries.
Driving is convenient but a complete waste of time and money when it comes to that endless search for a parking spot. No thanks; I’ll take public transportation every time if it’s available.
OMG – Where’s my ticket?
Here’s the situation. You purchased a ticket. You’re not a fare cheater. You’re an honest person. But, you were thinking about other things when you tucked that ticket in your purse, bag, backpack, shoe, wallet, glasses case, pocket, sandwich bag…. “My god, where did I put my ticket?” You know you put it in a safe place; you just don’t know where that safe place IS. No worries; they probably won’t check.
There Coming to Take You Away
It’s your unlucky day. The transit police are doing a random fare check. You cannot find your ticket. EEK. Freak-out moment. You’re already wondering how much the fine will be. In Seattle, on Light Rail, not having proof of fare will set you back $124. I’ve seen it over and over again. Sure some of those people were probably cheaters. But, others were poorly organized and ill prepared. Imagine traveling internationally and not speaking the local language. Oi! That would amplify the freak-out level at least tenfold for me.
Piggyback Good Habits
As common as tickets and passes are to most of our lives these days, there is another item that is even more common, phones. We all carry our phones with us most everywhere we go. Now it’s time to piggyback on that habit.
No longer do you have to remember where that safe place is for your ticket. It can be right there next to you phone. You don’t have to search for your ticket in your purse while holding up people and signaling too much information to strangers.
