Great stuff, no doubt. But he’s missing an opportunity here. How about some good old fashioned competition for the public tram? I mean real competition, not skateboarding on rails. Why not screw on a couple of seats, and then start charging less money than public transportation? Hire some bums to push the things along. All the track you need is already laid out for you by taxpayers. I bet you could get some sweet, sweet venture capital money and run at a loss for years while still making yourself rich.
You’ll need a neato name for your pallet transit company, though. A catchy name, a fly website, and little else is essential in today’s economy. What would be a great name for a transportation company that leeches off of public infrastructure, ignores all employment and safety laws, and takes investor money to avoid having to turn a profit indefinitely while still enriching investors? He should call it Uber.
