Taking public transportation is about to become more expensive. Hopefully the quality and number of routes will improve with these extra dollars. The monthly 30 day bus pass is jumping $25 from $75 to $100.
Some bus riders do so because it is GREEN and the right thing to do for the environment. Other bus riders do so because they do not and cannot drive. Many bus riders take public transportation because they are receiving public cash assistance and are furnished with just enough funding to buy a bus pass to go to work, training, school or therapy. Even if you do not take the bus, you are about to pay for more expensive bus passes.
