For some reason we can't just provide public service to public. Instead we have to use public money to subsidize private companies who benefit from the service.
Council members did express worries about the effect on low-income workers in the city's hospitality industry. Regional Transit Authority manager Justin Augustine said the authority will work with the industry on a tax incentive program for employers who help pay their low-income employees' fares.
Because, you know, public transit exists only to serve the needs of the hospitality industry.
