RAISE BUS FARE TO FUND RAIL SYSTEM

SHARE RAISE BUS FARE TO FUND RAIL SYSTEM

I received a letter in the mail called "Transition." In this letter, we were asked in Salt Lake County to have our sales tax raised so we could have a light-rail system.

I think our sales tax on food is already high enough. I cannot afford a higher food bill. The county will have to think of another way to raise money for the light-rail system.There has to be another way. How about raising the bus fare and putting that money aside? We who use the buses are going to benefit from this transition. As more people use the buses, more revenue will be collected. As service is more beneficial and useful, we will have more people using it and the revenue will be available.
