To me, this article implies that fuel taxes should be increased to cover the costs of providing roads. In that case, it is only fair that transit fares should cover the cost of providing services. Of course, this raises the price of all transport, but should lead to a cut in other taxes, because all transport would be self-funding. If traveling on a road should really be charged at 20c/km, then fuel tax would have to be $2/litre (based on 10l/100km). Transit prices would roughly double, as 50% farebox cost recovery seems typical.
