Megabus idea

Imagine you could get into a bus, have a desk and chair to sit on connect your laptop to a wi-fi network and work as you commute between different cities. What was a joke in Bangalore thanks to the dire traffic situation not so long ago, is a reality in US.

Megabus and Boltbus are changing the way one looks at commuting. I would argue commuting itself is not necessary, but if you have to commute why not make the most of it? There is a business opportunity here, especially for the railways here, if they have time to be updated on these ideas rather than create cultural centres.

And then again, mobile phones might make us take more public transport as opposed to drive around, eh!. (Link via Aadisht)
