Replied to French city makes its buses free, spurring new ridership and decreasing car use (Boing Boing)

A year ago, the city of Dunkirk in France made its bus system entirely free — causing a boom in ridership, as well as a drop in car usage.

It is interesting that there has been an increase in rides that may not have occurred previously Clive. This reminds me of an episode of RN Future Tense exploring whether free transport can save our cities? Also, Jonathan English wrote an interesting piece explaining what this is not necessarily the solution for the US.
