Senior free pass cost $8 million a year. Ok. But how much did it save? No word on that.

Milwaukee County Executive Proposes Annual $60 Vehicle Registration Fee | Wisconsin Public Radio: "Abele is also recommending an end to free bus passes for the eligible seniors and people with disabilities. Under his plan they would pay a one-time $5 fee for a pass plus 25 cents per ride. He said over the past three years, the pass has caused a $12 million dollar deficit."
Do you want seniors on the highways? One fatal accident costs the government about $6 million. How many jams and fender benders were prevented? In the US, it is very hard to get the whole picture when it comes to public transit. But we can show that fare-free pays for itself. #freeischeaper
