Green People Punished

Urban dwellers who use public transit are low carbon emitters. These same people must pay taxes to cover the externalities of the auto and sprawl.

Why, then, is there a tariff (fare) to punish them?

The answer is simple. The carbon-auto lobby has power. Public transit is the greatest threat to their power.

Fares hobble public transit.
