I cannot believe, or actually, yes, I can believe. The transit agencies have the nerve to ask the riders to pay for road fixtures. After they charge highway robbery prices for fares and monthly passes making themselves richer, they still want to dig into the pockets of the poor people they serve, if you want to call it "serve." These agencies have no shame and one day they will answer to their greed to one that will meet-out justice. One day I'm going to see if I can find an alternative transportation mode for the poor of the city of Oakland so they will stop being robbed by AC Transit. Or I could just make that agency show their budget records (the public record of their expenditures). I know they can't be fair to us riders, San Francisco was way cheaper for many many years. And on top of that we have to put-up with racism and people throwing-up on buses and violence and loud, nasty people that most of the bus drivers do nothing about! I'm really shocked at the greed when I look at the price of a bus ticket or pass.

Well if you go to my web-site you will see that i have a plan for lowering the bus far to 50 cents, and i'll use other funds to fix San Francisco roads,
