Another domino falls -- Keila, Estonia adopts free public transport

Capital Region Town Introduces Free Public Transport | Economy | News | ERR: "Keila city government spokesperson Valdur Vacht told that the idea for Keila to move to free transport was not new and that it made good economic sense.

"Keila has only two bus routes and up to this point children, the elderly and social workers rode for free. There are so many who receive benefits that it was more costly to administer a fare system than to allow everyone to ride for free," he said.
The town's transport would therefore be free for all passengers, unlike the Tallinn system, which is free only to registered residents of the city."
