The fare issue continues to blow me away. It's simple economics (cue A Smith) - every time you charge extra, you make it a little bit harder to ride a bus. This is especially true when it comes to fare increases which can't be made up easily without "exact change". $2.10, $2.40, $2.55 - it's not just the rising price, it's the fact that if you don't have dimes and nickels you're going to have to walk home or overpay.

The question isn't how to get more students and seniors on the bus - its' how to convince people who have the ability to drive to choose another option instead. That means making public transit something that's fast, efficient and reliable - not just continuing on with the "lowest common denominator" approach.
