The Calculus of Regional Public Transit and Bus Transportation

Wow. This person likes math. From the post, I think this person lives in Germany. Locally, there is a push by the Wasach Front Regional Council, for encouraging people to walk, use bikes more and use the bus system (UTA, the Utah Transit Authority) more. There are Regional Planning Meetings in order to give us more bike lanes and make the region more walkable and more bikeable. I don’t think they care about more “personal vehicle-able.”

This linked post is about the calculus and predictablility of bus riding, including how to prevent “bunching.” It is fascinating that anyone has a brain that can do this.

Read this person’s next blog post down, which is a orevious one, too. It talks about biometric data being stored in a card used to pay for public transportation as a way to make the German people (who like privacy) feel like their privacy is not being taken, while still assuring people pay for their public transportation.

If you want to know about these regional planning meetings, which are available the to the public, go to your city building and look for a posting hung there about it. These meetings will not be on facebook, twitter, in your city newsletter, or advertised on the radio or televisions. As a matter of fact, although they will reassure you they are open to the public, these are meetings they’d rather you did not attend. After all, they are meetings about how much more they can spend, which will increase your taxes. Why would they want to invite you?!? You have to be a Sherlock Holmes to find out when and where these public meetings are held. Do it. Know what is going on. Know why your taxes are going up. It’s not as if they want to tell you the truth. By “they” I mean your mayor, your city planner, the city planning commission, your city council members and the UTA.
