A Look at Some of DART's "Creative Concepts for Revenue Generation"
But there is something DART can do without the city's OK: "DART Radio" and Wi-Fi. Why not Wi-Fi, asks board member William Velasco -- after all, Amtrak just added it to trains in the Northeast, so why not DART trains and the Trinity Railway Express too? (New York's commuter rail lines are also close to going Wi-Fi.) And, while DART's at it, how about adding satellite radio on some buses? I believe it was Steve Dunne who first said, "If you give people a reason to get out of their cars -- coffee, great music -- they will park and ride."
Then there's the suggestion that would "offer young entrepreneurs an opportunity to use DART bus shelters as a venue for their start up operations." And ... my work is done here.
