Free Public Transit

My brain is still punch-drunk from the election, but here is a short piece from Free Public Transit, some activist folks I've been following on Twitter: It's the Demand, Stupid.

The payback [of free public transit] is immediate and greater than the "lost" revenue. Free transit is simple and easy to see. There are no complicated carbon-pricing indexes to be manipulated. And the myriad benefits are out in the open for all to see: less noise, less congestion, less parking problems, fewer collisions, lower medical costs
I wonder what Maggie Koerth-Baker would think of these guys' ideas?
