Another oil-troll attacks #freetransit, but they got nothing!

They try to frame #freetransit as an experiment. There is only anecdotal evidence they whine. Ha. The oil industry is panicked and the trolls and wannabe trolls are unleashed.
triplepundit : "Second, the importance of the results in Tallinn also stems from the fact that no comprehensive analysis was made to truly evaluate the impact of the experiments made so far in providing free transit (mostly in small cities in Europe), which left us mainly with anecdotal evidence. So basically this is the first time where we can truly evaluate the value of this policy tool."
Free public transit is not an experiment. Where are the studies to evaluate the impact of an automobile society? Well, turns out there is plenty of data on the auto. The auto is literally killing us.
