Counterproposal: We make transit free.— 🌹Shaun Scott for District 4🌹 (@ElectScott2019) December 20, 2018
Not just during the “period of maximum constraint.”
Not just for seniors and youths.
But for everyone. Forever.
Is Seattle a leading city on climate justice, or just interested in a “Green” rebrand for earth-killing capitalists? https://t.co/uD5aod6mdC

As a community, Seattle has been struggling with numerous issues like income equality, our world-class congestion, and the regressive nature of our tax system. One way to effectively deal with these issues is by implementing a fare-free transit system.https://www.theurbanist.org/2018/12/27/the-case-for-making-transit-free-and-how-to-pay-for-it/?
A fare-free system can quickly and significantly allow low-income people to have more disposable income, reduce traffic congestion by getting more commuters on buses, and reduce the regressive nature of our high sales taxes.
