What a concept! KC has made public transit FARE FREE and said it will only cost them $8 million a year, but the economic impact is well worth it. DUH!
â€œI think it would make the bus system stronger, not weaker, and would probably bring in more revenue, not less.â€Â
I also loved this quote from the Editorial board at the KC Star when people asked where they will find the money;
â€œA good first step would be to stop giving away tax revenue to developers.“
Yeah, maybe the AL Ed board should send the same message to our city leaders. Stop the corporate welfare in this city and we can find the money for all kinds of public programs.
