many people who use transit are poor or low-income. if they could afford to have a vehicle, they wouldn't be taking public transit. councilour justin swandel suggested that transit prices be raised to .25 extra and the motion passed in a matter of hours! that's right HOURS-with little notice to transit users. to raise prices means that more and more people will have zero access to transportation and therefore, cannot fund a viable way to get to and from school and jobs-two things that better our society and once again, the rich will get richer, while the poor are getting poorer and drained of their resources. in the spirit of the occupy movement to put an end to corporate greed, i think that we all need to do our part and say no on hiked transit fares! so i am asking people to sign this petition to keep transit rates the way they are now and i am asking katz (the reverse robin hood) and swandel to find it in their hearts to change their minds! thank you!
