From the RIPTA Riders’ Alliance:
“Next Thursday at 5pm, RIPTA RIders’ Alliance is holding a rally against the proposal to hike fares on Rhode Island’s disabled people and seniors who are living on limited incomes.
When: 5pm, Thursday, August 27th
Where: Kennedy Plaza”
I’ll be present for at least part of this, because I think that wherever additional money to operate public transportation should come from (and I agree that we need some!), it shouldn’t come from people who are unlikely to be able to get much more money than they have right now. I’m sometimes able to go to things like this, so I will go in lieu of someone who might want to but can’t.
If you’re wondering what this has to do with the work of this blog, see the first paragraph of this post.
