The solution to commuting woes
: I have the solution to commuting woes, crowded highways, underfunded trains and busses, all in one little word:
Commuter rails in Canada and northern California are testing wi-fi on commuter trains.
I drive to work now but that’d make me leave my car behind. I’d even pay more for the privilege of using the service. I could work, surf, chat, whatever instead of wasting time twiddling thumbs or staring off into space. I wouldn’t even get so upset during the delays.
NJ Transit: Take a lesson from Starbucks and McDonalds and Canada’s rails. If you offered wi-fi connectivity, I’d bet that more people would take the trains — and pay more.
