[Balin] Inconvvff routes

Postby Balin » Fri Apr 07, 2017 2:46 am

In order to prevent an inconvenience towards themselves, a group instituted a regulation benefiting a second group. Directly because of that, some time later, some members of that second group experienced the inconvenience. How?

Is this related at all to travel?

Groups = humans? adults of both sexes?

Did the second group benefit financially? Were they able to save time? Would the regulation be described as life-changing? Or more of a minor benefit? Does the first group work for a transportation authority?

Was the first group trying to influence the behavior of the second? Did the regulation achieve what the first group thought it would? Did the benefit put the second group in the same situation as the first?

Traffic relevant? Or any other kind of overcrowding?

Cars relevant? buses? trains? subways? trams? planes? ferries? boats? bikes? Any type of public transportation will do. The story, though, focuses on buses.

Did the second group benefit financially? Yes Were they able to save time? Technically also Yes Would the regulation be described as life-changing? Or more of a minor benefit? This Does the first group work for a transportation authority? Yes; the first group is the mass transit authority

Was the first group trying to influence the behavior of the second? Yes Did the regulation achieve what the first group thought it would? Yes Did the benefit put the second group in the same situation as the first? No

Traffic relevant? Or any other kind of overcrowding? Neither

Does the regulation apply to all public transportation? Or just buses? After the regulation, was the inconvenience only relevantly experienced by those who rode the buses?

The inconvenience to the mass transit authority:
Was it a financial burden? A time burden? Was the inconvenience experienced across all mass transit? Or just buses?

Was the inconvenience felt by the drivers? Ticket-takers? Route planners?
Is it related to other technology? Like phones? The internet? Is the second group "those who ride the bus"? Or is it a subset of that?
