Just picture it now. Free transit for everyone. You would think twice before taking your car out. You would park it as soon as you reached a subway station. You might even get rid of your car with its high maintenance, insurance and parking fees.
We would quickly start noticing the savings once we started using the free public transit and start leaving the cars behind. All that extra money. Hmm.. where would we use it all?
The environment and the air would be cleaner and would become easier to enjoy. Traffic would be dramatically reduced. Our roads would last longer. There would be fewer accidents. Emergency services could respond faster!
Don’t you think it’s about time this happens?
Me and my commuter thoughts think so!
