What if Riding the Bus Was a Game?

Seth Priebatsch shares some good ideas in his TED presentation on adding game dynamics to the world and it makes we wonder what would happen if we added those gaming elements to something like public transportation.  What if taking the bus to work in the morning helped you complete a quest, earn virtual currency, or achieve badges that earn you a free beer at your favorite bar?  If you are one of those folks who can't imagine switching to public transportation, would this motivate you to take the step?



Adding gaming elements could really take Robin Chase's ZipCar or GoLoco ideas to the next level.
