Free lunch for all! 'Thriving' ride to Boston
"Subsidy Ok'd for thriving bus line," read the Union Leader headline.
Why would something that is thriving need a subsidy? The Boston Express bus needs more taxpayer money because, the governor and Council were told last week, more people are riding its buses down I-93 and Route 3 to work in Boston.
So if it is so popular with riders, why not just increase the fare to actual cost levels and leave the taxpayer alone?
Right. If you charge what it really costs to operate a business and make a profit, the business might not be so "thriving."
