"TGV hitch-hiking"

This morning in the french news, a story of furious commuters, unhappy with the delay of their trains who stopped a high-speed train (TGV) in France. After few weeks of transport strikes and regular delay, the commuters on this line were so edgy that they warn the station manager that they would stop the TGV. As the article says, it's about "TGV hitch-hiking", a very discreet practice. Why do I blog this? in terms of (sub) computing urban or mobility applications would there be some interesting applications for transport regulation to think about based on this sort of practice?
