Innovative suggestions for attracting people to public transit

Original post made by Resident, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Mar 5, 2014

This is the kind of innovative out of the box thinking that Bay Area transit, Caltrain, etc. need to do. Web Link

It is pathetic that there is no innovative pricing to attract users to off peak and recreational transit.

People will use public transit if they feel they are getting a good deal and that it is a better option than driving. Getting into San Francisco or San Jose for evening entertainment by car is terrible, this sort of thing could help.

Caltrain has been asked to run more off-peak service in the past. They have responded that they don't have enough staff and equipment to expand. Meanwhile, our county governments just wasted $100 million on the Hwy 101 merging lane boondoggle. Thinking outside the box would be using that kind of money on public transit projects instead of more freeways.
