I think public transportation should be free to some people. I say this because for people who can't afford public transportation should be allowed to be free and people can pay should pay the amount for the transportation.
While the idea of free public transportation may seem appealing on the surface, it is important to carefully consider the potential financial implications, capacity constraints, and overall effectiveness of such a system in addressing broader transportation issues.
The main type of transportation is public transportation. It is cheap, easy to use, and gets people where they need to be. Putting more money into something that is already in good condition would be a waste of money for something that we can use the money on for better.
We would be taking away from the driver's pay and if everyone just got their own form of transportation we could not have to lower the price of the public transportation.
Everyone having/needing their own means of transportation is literally the biggest part of the problem. That's why we need free public transportation: so that everyone doesn't need to rely on personal car ownership just to travel.
Public transportation systems require massive investments in infrastructure, maintenance, and operation. Providing statistical comparisons between the costs of public transportation and alternative modes of transportation, like private vehicles or ridesharing services, can highlight the potential burden on taxpayers.
I agree with this statement because this can be another negative thing to drivers. You never know what they are going through that includes money issues. So with them being a transportation person who can spend a lot on their gas prices and such, it can be tiring. Another negative thing is by managing to stay awake all day, this can destroy their sleeping schedule and mentality. Therefore, I agree with this statement.
1. Prices for housing is 24% higher in areas where public transportation is available
2. Percentage of people utilizing public transportation has steadily declined since 1960 with the exception of short growth in the previous decade
3. What are the alternatives if public transportation systems fail for the day or an extended period of time?
The MTA is facing what has often been called a “fiscal cliff” as the agency uses up $15 billion in emergency federal aid to support operations during the pandemic, a sum officials have said could be exhausted by 2024, a year earlier than originally projected.
