  "description": "<p>Crowdsourcing is an organized way of involving people in decision-making and production. Crowdsourced<br>\nproducts, like Wikipedia, are replacing established products. Crowdsourced transport services, like UberTaxi, are<br>\nreplacing established transport providers. Crowdsourced advice, like Trip Advisor, is replacing established experts.<br>\nCrowdsourcing is becoming ubiquitous as people and organizations realize that it helps them make better decisions<br>\nand produce better products. This paper is predicated on the belief that crowdsourcing is key innovation needed<br>\nfor public transport to thrive in this age of rapid change. It presents a model structure for helping understand<br>\ncrowdsourcing and examples of how public transport organizations can use crowdsourcing. This paper&rsquo;s goal is to<br>\nhelp practitioners and researchers implement and understand crowdsourcing by presenting a broad survey of how<br>\ncrowdsourcing is being used today.</p>",
