Just when you thought "inventing" Ensure was the most ridiculous Silicon Valley thing ever, I bring you the innovative idea of ... a bus.

Honestly, there's plenty of room for disruption in small scale transit. Much of it has been regulated against at the behest of entrenched interests. So if they could make jitnies more of a thing, that would be fine with me.

If they have a regulatory workaround to expand bus service, good for them. If they call a bus a new and disruptive thing never done before, I hope they die from inhaling too many of their own farts.

This is either excellent parody or horrifying.

Plus having a GPS-trackable bus would be a vast improvement on the "huh, wonder when the bus will get here" thing that most bus stops feature now. "It says it will get here in two minutes, but I saw one pulling away three minutes ago and the previous one was supposed to be fifteen minutes ago...so was it late or this one early and will another one come at all?"

Agree.

Also, I doubt Lyft would be a unionized shop.
