Changning, China - Buses are now free

Ever wished public transportation was free?

Well, if you're in Changning City, central China's Hunan Province, your wish just came true. Starting from July 1, local residents and visitors enjoy a free ride along the city's three public transportation lines and the government has allocated 7 million yuan ($1 million) to facilitate the initiative.

I guess that's the difference between Capitalism and Communism. I live in Chicago, and the only way they could do that is to triple the price of the ad space that they sell on the buses, train stops, etc..maybe that's a start
