  • Port authority should create or update app that allow passengers to prepay through app. Customers will be able to purchase bus passes or show driver app on phone that shows fare been paid in advance. Port authority should also have more park and ride locations that can include bike stations..free parking..fare portals...put air in tires. This should be equip with cameras and lights for extra safety. Give passengers a %5 discount for purchasing fare through app. Also add a change machine at some locations. For people who dont have correct change to board bus.

Describe how you would pilot your idea (1000 characters)

It would be up to the port authority to implement this idea. I think it could be vital to their operation..if they were more public friendly. Their ridership could increase if it was more convenient to use their service.

Describe how you would measure the success of your pilot (1000 characters)

I would measure by how many people come on board with my idea. Also could implement a survey to see how many people agree or believe how useful the idea could be.

Hi Tangerine,

We would highly recommend adding a photo or image to your submission before the 4pm deadline. A visual representation of your idea can be a great way to attract and engage people looking through the proposals!
