.,."Marketing Public Transit should be on the 'best-seller' list of all public transit managers, both marketing specialists and those who are not. It is also a text that should be read by board memebers and funders of public transit. The customer has been king (or queen) for several decades in other industries. We should proceed with the coronation in public transit now. The authors conclude with the thought that 'creating and strengthening the marketing function in transit agencies is never easy, especially in heavily unionized environments. However, approaches used in other service industries demonstrate that a customer orientation can, in fact, become an organizational reality.'"-Canadian Public Administration
