Making urban public transport fare-free very doable and actually saves money

In urban areas, buses, trams, and such should be made fare-free. This will save money. Every municipality with cars can save. Even small towns. The money spent on traffic and parking enforcement alone would likely cover the lost fares in most cases. Then, the town would reap many more valuable benefits such as:
  • fewer collisions
  • more room
  • peace and quiet
  • safer cycling
  • cleaner air
  • more walking
  • lower health costs
  • less money exported for petrol
  • you can probably think of several more
