Tangent -- makes a whole lot more sense for the T to run wholesale while private vendors or city/town jitneys do the retail work

Especially at rush hour the T Expresses would bypass all of the street stops for much more efficient point to point runs from gathering points to rail transit hubs or local bus hubs such as Arlington Heights where local service would terminate

The local services could be much more flexible than the T offering Uber-like service as well as scheduled service such as the Lexpress
