In principle, free transit advocacy can also be an element in a broader vision to reorganize urban life and restructure the social order along red (working class-based, working toward socialism) and green (environmental) lines. This requires working through a host of open questions that go far beyond lowering the cost of fares. These include:
- How can a free and expanded transit system be financed?
- Can free transit be part and parcel of a green jobs strategy against austerity?
- Is free transit a potential weapon against global climate injustice?
