WASHINGTON, Feb. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- A new book "The Future of Public Transportation" written by transit industry veteran Paul Comfort and over forty top public transportation leaders, futurists and associations is being published March 1, 2020. It examines the coming technological revolution in public transport with game changing new mobility options such as autonomous shared vehicles (AVs), hyperloop and high speed trains, and Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) smart phone apps allowing passengers to plan, pay for and subscribe to a full menu of traditional public transit and private microtransit options for their travel. The book explains how cities are rebooting their bus networks and will further regulate and optimize the rampant expansion of e-bikes and scooters and add mobile public transit fare paying options such as cell phone and tap and go credit cards and even wearable fare payment jewelry. This book explains it all and what's coming next!

"The Future of Public Transportation" will be published on March 1, 2020 on Amazon.com and is now available for pre-order for only $.99 for two weeks (until March 14, 2020) for e-book download.
