5. The "first mile - last mile" challenge for implementing inter-urbans...

 

Any thoughts?

We are trying to promote ridership on our existing system, and hoping to expand services to include what might be the nation's first high speed rail (Altamont).

The first mile last mile problem is to provide simple cheap ways to get from home to station and from station to final destination.

Studies have been done and practices are in place now for bike rentals, zip cars, Trikkes, and Segways.

It's an interesting problem, especially in the suburban sprawl of Northern California, and specifically the SF Bay Area and Central Valley.

Any thoughts?
