Seoul City caves in to pressure, chooses capitalist profit over human survival

KBS World Radio: "Seoul City has eventually scrapped its fine dust reduction policy of providing free public transport on buses and the subway during rush hour.

This comes two months after the measure was first introduced.

The measure was disputed as wasting municipal budget as it cost nearly five billion won a day for the free rides."
Free public transport is much more than clean air. It threatens to break the monopoly that the auto has on moving people. When that happens people will no longer tolerate the huge subsidies needed to keep the auto system going.
