The cost of a commute
In the article “The cost of a commute” Jeninne Lee shows public transportation fees are on an incredible rise. San Francisco with it 57 million dollar debt is proposing to increase the price of a trolley car ride from $3 to $5 dollars! While Chicago Transit faces a similar 55 million dollar budget gap and is looking to increase fares from $1.75 to $3.40. Now are these price jumps only based on the fact that the public transit is in debt? I argue not completely, the increasing price of gas has got to be an issue.
