Grassroots, all I'm suggesting is that they might want to raise ticket prices rather than cash fairs if the majority of people are using tickets anyways. It just doesn't make sense to subsidize tickets by such a large degree. I've always been baffled by this.

As for the working poor, doesn't Hamilton still have that project that gives them half price monthly passes? It was up and running during the summer when I was working in the city. Have they discontinued it? I think you just had to bring a paycheque to prove you worked in the city, and your tax info (so they could see your annual income) and you could buy passes half price.

Either way, Mac students are still getting a deal that is far too sweet, the city needs to squeeze a little more out of them. Not much, but even $60 per student would be huge. Adn I'm confident that students would be willing to pay $120 for an 8 month pass.
