Free Public Transportation


Edit this: "To who know true love for the city is to know how to punish the private ownership of cars..."
Funny, yesterday as an answer to Seattle Transit Blog's article on transit for the poor, I suggested that we make transit free, via ORCA card, for any person who does not own, and are part of a household that does not own, a car.

The reasoning is that it is like the other people paying them to stay off the road and create less congestion..a kind of tax credit.

Uhhhhh, Island County WA offers free public transportation, Check out their free commuter service to Seattle, as well as the rest of their routes. Free rides, hell yeah!!!

The ultimate citizen of an ant farm does not live of it but lives for it.
