Kozhikode, Chile

Just thinking aloud about Transantiago.

If the problem was that the drivers were reckless, might it have been a better idea to require drivers (not companies) to take out insurance which could be used to pay anyone injured by their recklessness? It would not have been perfect but, combined with technology to record incidents of bad driving and with competitive markets for insurance, would this not have been a simpler solution than attempting a wholesale re-engineering of the public transport system?
