Writer suggests fare-free public transit for Waterloo, ON region

What a ride.
In its first 11 days of operation, our new light-rail transit system carried almost 300,000 passengers.
It’s a phenomenal, applause-worthy achievement that surpassed initial ridership projections.

Of course, the service for those 11 days was also free. Which begs the question, if we can attract this many transit users during a brief period of free fares, shouldn’t public transport be fare-free all the time?
