You are planning a new service for a specific market, such as service to a new neighborhood, new express service from a suburb to downtown, new service to serve a sports venue, special senior service, etc. The new service could be one of a thousand different concepts, but what are the right questions that should be asked when planning the service so it is successful once it begins operation. What needs to be done to avoid having a service “that can’t miss” becoming an expensive flop once it starts?
