sounds good to me. Gas tax, congestion tax, uber/lyft tax, private sector funding.The MBTA has $694M in fares in its 2020 budget. Advertising is $30M, parking is $45M, and real estate is $22M. They'd be foregoing 86% of their operating revenue and 33% of the revenue in their operating budget (the lion's share of the rest comes from dedicated sales tax).
The only way you can make transit free is by levying a big tax on people who don't use transit (or live in the MBTA service area), even more than we already do.
gas tax has increased 3% since 1991
T fares have increased 300%.
Time to flip that on it's head.
better for the economy and the environment.
