"road ways are supported by property and income taxes and surcharges on fuel. Which we all pay."

That's exactly the problem. We all pay for the roads. We pay for a clover leaf at Clappison's and an expressway through the Red Hill Valley even if we live downtown and don't own a car. Should not the residents of Waterdown pay more in their property tax in order to cover the upgrades to Highway 6? I pay more in my property taxes in order to cover the transit service in my area despite the fact that I ride my bike everywhere rain or shine.

So actually, we do NOT have a user-pay system for roads. We have an everybody-pay system. Why not apply everybody-pay to transit? I'm all for the user-pay system if it gets applied fairly to all services...
