THE MADISON EXPERIENCE

Members of several citizens commissions who in 1976 had voted not to continue a pricing study in Madison, Wisconsin, were interviewed a year later about the reasons for their decision. The reasons tended to revolve around such factors as the image of the city (i.e. "toll booths in the streets") questions of equity, concern about bus operating costs, and adverse comments from constituents. Apparently those in support of the idea felt less strongly about it than those opposed; the former made little effort to generate community support, leaving opponents with little to do to stop the studies.
