As with most, even middle-sized cities, mine gets into near grid-lock about once a week.
How about this to give bus systems a cheap kick in the bus ... use the serial number on your machine-delivered ticket as a lottery number.
The devil's in the details of course, a lot of small ones and few
biggies such as getting official approval for yet another lottery in my gambling-obsessed country. Is there one that isn't the same these days?
And getting anywhere on time now is a daily gamble, so why not sit back and watch the screen for your lucky number to flick up.
That's one way at least of operating TransLotto.
Over to you, Halfbakers!

||I like this idea. In Taiwan, there is a lotto made up of sales receipts. This keeps shops from selling stuff under the counter.
||You could also put in some sort
of treasure hunt element. So *Vital Clues* would show up on the
inside reader boards of certain bus lines each month.
