MBTA Free for All: 2

The initial call for fare-free or greatly reduced-fare Boston-area transit brought solid responses. I still intend:
  • To attend and testify at one or more hearings.
  • To collect and present reader responses here.
  • To gather supporting documents for the concepts.
Meanwhile, you can see some excellent comments on the initial post. Also the ever sharp — in all senses of the term — Chris at LeftCenterLeft immediately brought up a key consideration. How can the MBTA handle increased rush-hour ridership? I think of the Green Line trolleys stocked like a Chinese restaurant's carp tank.

We can do it, but the bureaucratic MBTA wouldn't lead the way.
