Here’s the news:
“Reiskin said he’d like to develop a fare system that cuts down on the red tape and provides discounts for those who need them, and full-fare rates for those who don’t. Reiskin said the program ideally would be cost-neutral, with prosperous older riders paying increased fares and lower-income adults paying less.”
Now of course MUNI wants more money money money all the time time time.
So of course, you could concoct a scheme that would be cost-neutral, at first, anyway.
But that wouldn’t be the point of the exercise.
The point of the exercise would be to raise revenue for MUNI by subsequently raising fares for the average rider.

Step two is to raise fares.
I see what you’re doing there, MUNI.
Well, myself, I’m through with the two-step.
