It is nice to see that Capital Metro has adopted much of the 2008 Bus Riders Union-ATX plan for a high-frequency gridlike system. [See "Rising Ridership
," News, Sept. 7.]
We also proposed that the system be fare-free to maximize ridership. This report shows that it works. The increase in riders is solely attributable to reducing fares on the rapid bus and allowing students to ride free this summer. It's working; now let's max this thing out!
