Who Says Free Transit?

Posted by Steve Anderson on Thursday, October 1st, 2009

Recently, we posed the question: Could congestion pricing lead to free transit?

Civic activist and noted labor relations attorney Ted Kheel, and energy-policy analyst and transport economist Charles Komanoff, promise commuters in the NYC area free buses, drastically reduced subway fares, reduced peak-hour congestion, faster bus service and more. They used their “Balanced Transportation Analyzer (BTA)”

In this video, Komanoff explains the BTA, with an introduction by “Gridlock Sam” Schwartz, the noted traffic and transportation engineer.
