Hi, I have an idea and I’ll keep it simple: give taxis and busses to trusted company owners to start their own transit companies to help promote the creation of more businesses and realism. Now a problem people had with this idea is how they wouldn’t have government oversight, which can easily be fixed by implementing requirements on how busses operate on a day-to-day basis and how the companies should train their employees.
Law Enforcement and Regulation Enforcement:
Along with the creation of these private companies, a Transit Police could also be created to help ensure these regulations are being met and to investigate and respond to crime or incidents that require law enforcement that involve transit companies in any way, whether that be the passengers, employees, or vehicles. If people don’t like the idea of an LEA focused solely on transit they could also consider adding a DOCM Law Enforcement division (which would be small) to handle both those transit investigations and other investigations regarding businesses that may have broken the law.
There has been multiple forum posts about this similar type of topic and taxis and buses will stay with DOT because I’m guessing for the reason of it being so easy for business employees to mess around with them and break laws, etc and businesses wouldn’t have access to the models to use in their own games for training purposes like DOT has.
The founders will give vehicles to those businesses they feel need it like Quest did so it’s a case of waiting for dev support.
I wouldn’t mind taxi & bus companies…I think we already have some like Kotse & Quest though they don’t get much actual support from development. Transit Police I don’t think would be as huge of a usage yet
Fedlaw would not let this happen! I believe that this is a bad idea and can easily be abused due to loose commerce business rules, businesses can hire whoever they want ideally with out a proper background check.
