More and more cities are beginning to offer free public transit in an effort to cut global warming. At the same time, encouraging public transit (when done right), can acutally save the government money. Governments give out many subsidies pertaining to private vehicle ownership, but contibuting just a small amout of a government’s budget to free public transporation costs less and helps the environments. Some cities that are offering free public transportation are Staten Island, NY; Island County, WA; Chapel Hill, NC; Vail, CO; Logan and Cache Valley, UT; Clemson, SC; Commerce, CA; as well as many European cities.
Currently, none of the major cities in the U.S. or elsewhere offer public transit. However, there is a handful of smaller cities and towns that provide free public transit, including Chapel Hill, NC and Whidbey Island, WA. See the link below for a full list, along with links.
Some college towns may also offer free public transit to students with valid student IDs in and around town. UC Davis operates a bus service (in which students are trained and paid to drive the buses part-time) available to students and the public. Students ride for free and nonstudents pay a reasonable fare.
Seattle operates a “ride free zone”; public transit is free in areas of downtown Seattle.
