Free Transit Now! -1/2 Free Public Transport for a Sustainable Future -

Socialist Project

In principle, free transit advocacy can also be an element in a broader vision to reorganize urban life and restructure the social order along red (working class-based, working toward socialism) and green (environmental) lines. This requires working through a host of open questions that go far beyond lowering the cost of fares. These include:

  • How can a free and expanded transit system be financed?
  • Can free transit be part and parcel of a green jobs strategy against austerity?
  • Is free transit a potential weapon against global climate injustice?
