I don’t think that the city council should give out metro cards for $100 a
month to encourage people to ride public transportation because people
who ride public transportation do so out of the fact that they have no other
way. People who ride the bus don’t pay anyway in some areas and low-
income people only ride the bus when they are in a hurry. It’s for people
who have no choice. If you can pay for car service or have a car which
is what people would like, you don’t need the card for $100 each month.
And how much would this cost D.C. in a year’s time? Maybe they should
concentrate on education and jobs.
