Boston’s New “Smart Mass Transit” Gets You To Work Faster-For A Price – See Video

It’s time to go to work. But instead of walking a half-mile to the nearest bus stop and waiting in the searing morning sun, you tap in your location to an app and keep sipping your coffee at your kitchen table. The bus stops mere blocks from your house and delivers you to work in record time.

That’s the pitch for Bridj, a new startup in Boston that’s billing itself as “the first smart mass transit network.” Since that doesn’t really describe what they do very well, here’s my take: They’re creating a new system of luxury buses which have perks like Wi-Fi to cater to commuters who want to fork out the extra money for comfort and convenience.
