Crowdfunding is a trend that attracts lots of people willing to fund projects that are promising. It could be very successful when resources are limited. In periods of economic recession when public funding for Public Transport Authorities and Operators is limited and not enough to support services, the local community might be able to contribute in order to keep a service running or implement a specific project. Concerning the initiator, Public Transport Authorities and Public Transport Operators can assume this role, while the geographical scope of a crowdfunding campaign in Public Transport should probably have a regional scope, as the chances of being successful increase, when it addresses the needs of the actual audience addressed (Public Transport users and non-users) that will benefit from the fund seeking idea. Crowdfunding is suitable for early stage innovations to assist their market take up. It is recommended to use them for short/medium-term well focused project resulting in tangible (visible) and easily verifiable results.
