First, they should focus on actually improving the transit system itself so that people will actually ride it due to its usefulness.

That doesn't mean DART can't reach out to a local advertising agency and ask them to do the work pro-bono. It would require Brad Oldham's permission since I believe he owns the rights to Traveling Man.

They can just rely on their service, convenience, safety and reliability to get people on board. How sad that a similarly laid out city, Houston, had the foresight to actually focus on getting their riders to where they needed to go by revamping their system, yet DART wants 10 years to do the same. Houston ridership far exceeds ours and there is no reason why that should be so. Totally unacceptable. But there is some consolation I guess in that we currently exceed them at getting our suburban commuters in and out of downtown in rapid fashion.
