In reference to the suggestion that the trasnit fare increase would disproportionately hurt our poorest residents, someone calling themselves "A Robot" wrote:

"Skip a couple McDonalds breakfasts and you'll break even."

Am I alone on finding that stereotype really offensive?

Anyhow, I'd love to see research or even anecdotal evidence supporting the idea that lowering fares and improving service would actually increase ridership enough to create a net benefit to the system as a whole.
