I was watching the news last night and our city council is mulling over an idea to raise city revenue by not raising personal property taxes (a wonderful idea, I might add). They want to increase usage fees, i.e. public transportation fees, city park fees like shelter rentals, motor vehicle licensing and such. I think this is a great idea myself, sort of like toll roads. Why should I pay for it if I never use it? But if I do use it, I can pay more. I just don't know if it will generate enough revenue--any thoughts?Answer Question

According to this public transportation calculator, I would save $10.00 per YEAR if I took public transportation instead of my car to work! A "trusty dusty car" is FAR better than having to walk to and from, then wait with up to 50 other people in the heat, cold, rain and snow to get a smelly ride to work.
I've purchased and paid for the operating expenses (insurance, gas, tune ups, etc.) of my OWN vehicles since I was 17 years old and a junior in high school!
