This same report also gave some hints on how certain solutions that were taken into account when developing the design for the bus stop and public phone. - Ridesharing - Flexible scheduling - Bus stops need to be more comfortable with shade and a place to sit - Availability: time schedule (nights and mornings), reach of bus routes (outskirts of city), getting around downtown - Safety: promotes less drinking and driving, will not be harmed by others like homeless - Cost increase without service increase - Possibility of making fares for riding the bus free or not too costly - More bus lanes and in effect more bus stops - Having the ability to go through toll roads - Technology: Apps to show bus is on time, More use of technology for bus in general
