Electric Ride

Suburban electric taxi takes people to transit centers. The taxi itself is an electric vehicle to take advantage of its high reliability and its very high fuel efficiency in short haul transportation. Suggested initial vehicle - Nissan Leaf.

Next Stop: Sunset Transit Mall
Test sight: Oregon bedroom community lacking sufficient demand to justify more than two drive-time bus runs a day. Average ride distance between two and six miles to a nearby transit center.

Quick charging stations at key locations (transit center, high school). Consider battery swap as option to battery charging for quick turnaround.

Students as drivers. Excellent driving records. Each have taken Drivers Education course.

Full Cloud/GPS mashup integration for efficient and highly convenient scheduling. Phone and tablet app interface for mobile convenience. Database records daily activity. Public interface to it helps others plan similar services in other locations.

NOTE: Some of the foregoing in this BuzzTheHill post is not fictional. Consider it a public disclosure and as such, to the degree something novel and not obvious to those skilled in the art has been addressed, the specific intent was/is to put it in the PUBLIC DOMAIN
