Hi A. Smith,

Please point out one North American public transit system that does not receive funding from the tax levy. TTC is the closest, 80% of their operational costs but no capital are paid by fares. You can't compare PUBLIC transit to private companies like Chrysler, it is ridiculous. People choose to live in municipalities based on the public services offered. Other money losing ventures are hockey arenas but they like public transit mean something to most people and enhance the quality of life for the residents.
