Metro Solutions Suggested

Our “Metro” public transit system is out of money and cutting service. People can’t get to their jobs. Simultaneously, unemployed people might be willing to drive people to work for a small fee.

Bevis Schock has a solution: Deregulate the taxi business and let anybody drive anybody anywhere for whatever price the parties can agree on. Not a bad idea in desperate times.

    Not a bad idea, but it falls apart when there is a wreck.
    I would love to drive people to where they need to go, but I don't want to be responsible when some idiot runs over me and injures whoever I am hauling.
