City Mayors, cut your budget costs with #freetransit

How many budget items support the private auto? What if your town had fewer of them? Here are some budget items where costs might be reduced:
  • health costs from pollution
  • traffic congestion
  • collisions
  • pedestrian protection
  • parking subsidy
  • parking enforcement
  • traffic court
  • traffic management
  • health costs from collisions
  • police
  • ambulance
  • ...many more...
See our spreadsheet that shows a 0.9% that's 9/10's of one percent reduction in major costs in your city would pay for free public transit.
See our list of localities that currently have free public transit.
