...Public Transportation The question is no longer whether a form of universally free public transportation is a good idea, but how to best implement such a system. The long-term benefits, such as lowering costs for constant infrastructure investment and creating more environmentally-friendly land use policies, far outweigh the short-term investments. In addition, given technological changes, it is now quite reasonable to suggest that public transportation will become more cost-efficient, more environmentally-efficient, and more demographically-efficient in the future. This essay will argue that now is the time to start planning for and investing in a universally free... The Case for Universally Free...
