Smart Para-Transit

SMART PARA-TRANSIT - Among the recent additions to the directory are two items that describe how a workable demand response transport (DRT) system could be implemented effectively and affordably using existing technology. In Using Information Technology to Achieve a Breakthrough in Transportation in New York City, LimeWire founder, Mark Gorton explains how such a system (which he calls Smart Para-Transit) could work in New York. While the video below: Transit On Demand (Have Cell Will Travel), produced by Peak Moment Television, serves as a good introduction to the concept.
