Free transport eminently doable

...So roughly a 1% increase in the state budget would make the trains free. Call it 2% to include busses and ferries. Some of that you get back from savings in ticketing costs. Probably have to spend more to improve the service to cope with increased demand. But then gain more savings on reduced costs in road casualties, health care due to pollution – hey, maybe you could claim carbon credits by getting people off the roads.
