FREE MASS TRANSIT

FREE MASS TRANSIT IS SUGGESTED BY THE ADMINISTRATOR OF THE ATLANTA TRANSIT SYSTEM. OTHERS HAVE SECONDED THE IDEA. BUT FREE SERVICE ALONE WILL NOT ENTICE PEOPLE FROM THEIR CARS. THE SERVICE MUST BE CLEAN, MODERN, CONVENIENT, AND EXTENSIVE ENOUGH TO COVER A LOGICAL REGION, NOT SIMPLY A LOCAL CITY AREA. VARIOUS SUGGESTIONS, FROM BOND FINANCING TO TAX SUPPORT, HAVE BEEN FORWARDED AS MEANS OF FINANCING SUCH OPERATIONS. IN ADDITION TO THE FINANCING PROBLEMS, LABOR PROBLEMS MUST ALSO BE SOLVED, AS THE MOST EFFICIENT SYSTEMS WILL BE AUTOMATED ONES. PRESENT FEDERAL STANDARDS COVER COLLECTIVE-BARGAINING AGREEMENTS, RETRAINING FOR DISPLACED WORKERS, AND RE-EMPLOYMENT RIGHTS.
