6 Cool Things About a Customized Bus Route

We’ve heard plenty of excuses before–people just don’t want to ride the bus. And as transit riders, we understand your pain, too.

We know.

In Helsinki, Finland, they have come out with a new bus program called Kutsuplus, and it essentially does all of the things that you complain about regarding your bus commute.

6 AWESOME THINGS ABOUT KUTSUPLUS

1. It’s a personal service as opposed a set schedule with set routes.

2. You can install an app that lets you set your pickup and drop-off location.

3. It’s much more inexpensive than similar services we have here in the United States because it’s a bus, not a cab or a black car like they use for Uber.

4. It’s calculated the same way taxis calculate fees, per kilometer or mile. Which actually makes a lot of sense, and can ultimately save you money.

5. There’s space available for your bike, your stroller, etc.

That feeling when you can stretch out your legs. ^^ Yep.

6. Free WiFi.

Yes.
