Eloquent call for #freetransit for the NC Triangle

The benefits of fare-free public transit are not confined to the environment and traffic. Having a fare-free system allows lower wealth individuals better access to jobs, education and the many cultural and recreational opportunities our communities offer. It is the ultimate win-win.
So why not the Triangle? I recognize that going fare-free will be neither easy nor fast. It will require that our cities, counties and bus systems work cooperatively with major employers and educational institutions. And fare-free doesn’t mean free — additional revenue sources will have to be found. But as with bus trips themselves, you never finish your journey if you don’t start it.
Not only can we do this, we have to. And the time to start is now. There’s simply too much riding on it.
