Ariel,

If you agree to apply that same reasoning to motorists (who currently pay zero per-use fees to the city), and eliminate free parking (so non-motorists aren't subsidizing motorists), and put tolls on the Linc/Redhill freeways (to help re-coup the massive debts the city took on to build them), then we can talk.

If one set of users pays directly per use, then all should.

It is interesting to note that originally all major roads into Hamilton (except the Jolley cut) were privately run toll roads ... they were 'socialized' because the road users didn't like the user pay system!
