Once you start thinking about a solution for a given problem like transportation – how, for example, do I most efficiently get from here to there – you start to focus on a broad range of available choices for intermodal movement (planes, trains, buses and Ubers) rather than on the need to rent or own a particular vehicle.
That’s true not only for businesses that want to compete, but also for governments that want to deliver more value to citizens.
King County’s Best-run Government priority tries to deliver services using this solutions-driven thinking. That means delivering more services with existing resources. That means trip planners that aren’t limited jurisdiction or mode of transportation.
