I haven’t had time to write about AC Transit’s proposed fare hike, and I don’t have time right now to write about their proposed tax hike instead. I think that both issues are complicated enough to deserve more than a “yes, I support this” or “no, I don’t support this” comment, so I’m not offering any opinions on either at this time. I just wanted to point out, in response to a comment on the Chronicle story that reads:
tax the people who use ac transit only. no one else.
that the benefits of good bus service extended to everyone on the roads, not just the transit dependent. I could go on explaining this, but, um, The Onion really covered it pretty well like 8 years ago, so just go read that.
