Should Transit Be Free? | Car Free Baltimore

Also, auto user fees don't even pay the full
 construction and maintenance costs of roads
 (this statement probably wouldn't have fit on her back).
Should Transit Be Free? | Car Free Baltimore:

  • "Reduction in operating costs (fare collectors, payment system terminals would be abolished)
  • Increased ridership
  • Broader demographic groups would ride because of convenience and low barriers to entry
  • The environmental, social and health benefits (positive externalities) of each new transit rider would more than compensate for lost fare box revenue
  • More political power/representation due to massive increases in ridership"
