Hyperloop admits it is a scam to use taxpayer money to make your city a slave to Wall Street banks.

The most authentic thing I’ve heard about this particular project comes at the 0:41 second mark of the (non-embeddable) video on the project website.
“The exciting thing about hyperloop’s project is that it is fundable, both by Wall Street and by the USDOT and state DOTs across America.”

Cleveland needs #freepublictransit, it is possible

Makinen, who lost his eyesight about four years ago, said his disability has helped shape his belief that public transit is more than just transporting people, that it’s a service that should be woven into the “fabric of the community.” 
Some naysayers contend that security will become more of a problem if anybody can ride for free. But Makinen dismisses such speculation. He believes just the opposite would likely occur if ridership goes up because more people would be on board to see what’s going on.

This article outlines some of the benefits of fare-free public transit. The money people save on fares will more likely be spent locally, rather than spent on gasoline, where most of it leaves the community.

Fare-free roads are taken for granted, what about public transit?

Candidate for Dayton City Commission David Esrati is proposing fare free public transit

The reality is, the taxpayers are already paying for RTA through the sales tax, and from Federal dollars, and the amount of money RTA collects through fares is negligible. Once you eliminate the costs of collecting fares- from the administration of tickets and passes and transfers, to the accounting and control functions of the funds, and then figure in fuel costs and time wasted while waiting to collect the fares- the amount of real revenue is almost none. By returning ad sales to the outsides and insides of buses, RTA could more than make up for the lost revenue and the increases in ridership would be even more desirable to advertisers.
