Oh no! Overcrowding! What a disaster!

We can't make buses free, because they will be overcrowded. Wait, what? That is the point! People want public transit, they are willing to pay for it through taxes. They vote with their seat by getting on free buses. So the buses are crowded. So put out more buses. It is what the people want. The government serves the people, right?

Free buses are a disaster for some people. Subsidized autosprawl profiteers. They don't want car welfare to be exposed and ended. Their argument about crowding just proves that fares are for rationing, not revenue.

Free Melbourne tram ride may lead to overcrowding warns transport group: "Free tram travel in Melbourne's city centre could encourage so many people to jump on board it will lead to serious overcrowding issues, a transport users group and the Greens have warned."
