Metro Wars

Interesting developments about competing metro funding plans

The newest plan calls for new parking hikes and keeps bus rates flat.

The original plan moderately increased fares for parking, trains and buses

The new plan is much more progressive since bus riders have low incomes and metro riders are more affluent.  Outside my personal bias of being a suburban metro rider, I still think the original plan is better because all users of metro will share the burden of new fees.  I’m still waiting to see exactly why new funds are needed.  Previously, the shortfall gap magically decreased by several tens of millions of dollars unexpectedly.
