    With public transport supporting jobs, health and education in so many nations it should be the governments reponsability to provid a FREE service for the citizens not old enough to obtain a license, to old to drive, not able to afford vehicle and not willing to pollute the atmosphere, to enable those to mobilize them selves to participate in the comunitity.

    Do you agree?

    Privitisation is the wrong way to run the complex logisticts of a city, especially when there is no way the company can prophit, I'd rather pay one doller more in tax than risk a fine from a conglomerate!

    The whole reason we moved to Canada was because nearly all of Britain's public sectors were being privatized. Now that shit is starting to happen here, and Britain is is (well, at least on the way to being) back like it was.....

    The ironing is delicious......

    I'm a big fan of public transport.

    I suppose that the transport I see is a little different that what otehrs might deal with.
    Here my route is filled with all types of people, but a huge chunk of it is young, semi-professional girls.
    Hell, I've picked up on the streetcar before.

    but really.... Ride a bike !

    public transportation is convenient, and relaxing. driving is stress. unless you drive for pleasure. driving costs mad loot. public transportation i vote for overwhelmingly in favor of it.

    There's a little bus service run by my city and all they would charge was $0.25 and you could go anywhere within town limits.

    even if the government provided it for us we'd be paying through taxes, so those who don't use it would still be paying. I use public transportation and it'd be ncie if they made it cheaper, but i doubt it'll ever happen

    Free public transport all the way. I've had to turn down well paying, interesting jobs because I can't get there by public transport. Never mind bus tickets went up for the 3rd time in as many years on Sat. Grrrr...
    I don't understand the whole trying to make profit on public transport, healthcare, seniors homes etc... It just seems so immoral to try and make money off something that is necessary for people. Healthcare, public transport, seniors care etc... is too important to be left in the hands of companies whose only care is to make money.
