We may have figured out what Sun Metro is really doing with the new Brio lines they are setting up across the city.
Driver-less cars will be here sooner than any of us think. Even if we are wrong about this ride hailing services will continue to grow.
The net effect for Sun Metro might be that their only income opportunity is for long haul (across town) transportation.
Other solutions, be they driver-less cars or ride hailing/sharing, will become more attractive both from an economic and convenience standpoint. We are seeing shorter runs being handled more and more by these new alternatives in big cities across the nation.
Is Sun Metro trying to build a new delivery model with the Brio?
Some of you will probably take us to task for presuming that anyone at the city can think that far ahead.
We deserve better
