Where is the vision for public transport?

“Those who have no vision are unable to fulfill great hopes or realize great projects.” This quote from former American President Wilson comes to mind when I think about the price structure of transport today.

Public transport is intended to play an important role in our country: it should make a significant contribution to the required reduction in greenhouse gases and thus become an important pillar of climate policy. As far as I know, no one has yet figured out exactly how this is supposed to work. But that’s exactly what I think is important now with regard to the price structure. Why?

The public transport industry has done important preparatory work in recent months to set the course for the two systems (zone price = francs for time and route price = francs per kilometer) in the future. A uniform tariff system is planned. Bravo!
