Comfort, design, and efficiency are often the last things you think of when you think of public transportation. Well, a brand new endeavor in San Francisco called Leap is revolutionizing morning commutes with its sleekly designed, technologically advanced bus that looks “more like a living room than a city bus!”
Leap takes the stress out of your commute by providing everything you’ve ever dreamed of in public transportation. The bus is never more than 15 minutes away and the tech-friendly Leap App allows users to track the exact position of the bus in real time along with the number of available seats. And forget rummaging for loose change in your pockets, riders can either scan their digital pass on board or print a paper ticket in advance!
Perhaps the most appealing aspect of the Leap bus is its design. The back area features a comfy, sofa-style seating which encourages rider interaction, while the front hosts roomy single seaters for those who prefer to zone out on their way to work. The middle section boasts a laptop bar with stools for anyone looking to check emails or surf the web. The bus is equipped with USB ports, powering devices, and wi-fi.
Snacks are available on board and can be purchased via app. Healthy, local, organic options are available for those looking for re-fuel while on the go! The express route travels from Lombard Street to Downtown, with new routes being created upon user request. Is this the future of public transportation? I sure hope so!
