Explains how market forces can revitalize transit, focusing on street- based transit, such as buses, shuttles, and jitneys. Examines jitney services from America's past, illegal jitneys in America today, and jitney services in less developed countries, looking at the potential benefits of governance of curb zones and pickup areas. Argues that the creation of curb rights leased by auction would allow bus service and jitneys to flourish in American cities and rid the market of inefficient government production and overregulation.
