Seancb, I'm trying (I need to take more time editing my posts) to highlight Ryan's commitment to increasing transit ridership, even though the only way to do this is to use the power of government taxation.

In order to keep ridership growing, the service must be subsidized by the very people who choose to avoid paying in the first place. What people refuse to give at the fare box, Ryan finds acceptable to take through tax collections.

Using that line of thinking, government could subsidize horse and carriage rides and he would be singing the praises of a return to less polluting modes of transportation.

Ryan, if government needs to subsidize a product or service, it's an inferior offering, period. Let the people decide what they want and mind your own business.
