Public transportation should be free to the public. People riding more bikes is a good thing and the way we think about transportation and its funding is completely backwards. Lets not forget that there are transit dependent folks and there are choice riders. Those who are physically or geographically unable to ride a bike or walk to work rely on public transportation and when funding and operation costs are dependent on the appeal to choice rider, the dependent suffer.

Metro blames bikeshare for lost passengers but bikeshare is just going to get bigger.  -Washingtonian
