NEW YORK – With his new book “Automated Fare Collection System & Urban Public Transportation: An Economic & Management Approach To Urban Transit Systems” (published by Trafford Publishing), Clifford N. Opurum draws from his expertise as a leader in the fields of business and transportation to deliver a thoughtful discussion about the uses and benefits of public transportation.
Opurum refers to mass transit as the engine that drives the urban economy. Therefore, as he says, transit service must be operated in the most cost-effective manner, and sold to the people at an affordable price. With “Automated Fare Collection System & Urban Public Transportation” Opurum discusses one solution to the transit operating cost and the pricing concerns, something he says has already influenced the travel pattern of most transit patrons.
“(My book addresses) the increasing consciousness about environmental pollution and the rising cost of travels and overall negative impact on society,” says Opurum.
Ultimately “Automated Fare Collection System & Urban Public Transportation” delivers Opurum’s message about the benefits of using mass transit. He hopes to educate the public on those benefits and to encourage people to use public transportation more often. He says these efforts will help to improve the quality of the environment for everyone.
