Everything is two-tiered in US, #publictransit no exception

The Stranger: "The Transit Riders Union (TRU), a five-year-old organization that focuses on one of the most important democratic institutions in Seattle, public transportation, is deeply concerned that the expansion of Link and Metro's service restructuring on March 26 will establish "a second-class transit system" in Seattle. Why? Because light rail does not accept the reduced fare bus tickets that 138 social service agencies around the city provide the young, those with low or no income, and the elderly."
