The article looks at the ways the industry is trying to demonstrate that they are willing to do whatever it takes to provide consistent, reliable service. Cooperation within the industry and communication with the customers are seen as vital to achieve the goal of affordable, reliable, 'seamless transportation' for the customers, and to help avoid possible re-regulation.
