Free transit in Kingston? Let's do it!

What if Kingston… – Kingstonist: "Do you think many Kingstonian’s would relinquish their automobiles in favour of a free, lifetime public transit pass?  Would taxpayer funds be better spent on offering free transit service rather than spent on lane expansions and third crossings?  Not only do I think the answer to both of those questions is yes, but I believe the positive ramifications would far exceed beyond curing traffic congestion and greenhouse gases, as the result could include more bike lanes, business opportunities for car sharing, and increased levels of personal fitness.  By leading the way and becoming the first Canadian city to adopt a free transit system, Kingston could set itself apart from other sustainable wannabes and reap the benefits."
