How about totally free public transit? | Troy Media Corporation

How about totally free public transit? | Troy Media Corporation: "We need radical change or those traffic jams will just get worse and worse and worse.
The first step is to send a strong signal to people by making hopping on a bus or train absolutely free. Cost is not a deciding factor for a lot of people, but it is for some and, more importantly, anything that makes it easier and more attractive to take transit should be adopted."

Mayor Nenshi | The City of Calgary - Public transit must be an election issue

Mayor Nenshi | The City of Calgary - Public transit must be an election issue: "Public transit is a critical element in making cities work. It is also a solution to many of the issues we face as a society. An effective public transit system helps combat gridlock and air pollution, of course, but it also increases social mobility, helps those living in poverty get to school and work, and increases the feeling of community."
