  3. Does this include free parking at MTA Stations that charge parking? The ad/news is not clear on this point.

      There will still be a fee for parking.

    • Hi Frank —

      My apologies for getting it wrong yesterday — parking is free today at Metro lots. The machines won’t accept money. Again, I’m sorry for the bad info yesterday!

  5. Hey Mr. CEO, instead of making free rides for an Election Day, when you know for a fact, half the people won’t even vote, and half of the other half aren’t even of age to vote.
    Don’t you realize half of YOUR riders, don’t even pay, it’s a courtesy all the time!
    Ride the buses and enforce the fare all the time. Us regulars, are tired of hearing those famous words to an operator.. “Can I get a courtesy ride?”

    Everyone pays up, or no one pays. You choose.
    Get on it Mr. Washington.

    • I can’t tell if the use of “YOUR” is supposed to be a dog-whistle, but i’d say there’s a reasonable chance.

      • Well Shrek, wouldn’t it be pretty obvious that if it wasn’t? You must not see the truth out on the streets, unlike the ones who ride the buses and the rails, ones that hide and shelter behind the desks are blind to it all and only there for the money and fame. What a shame, what a shame, oh but it’ll haunt him one day, and what a day that’ll be.

  6. In my experience, polls are almost always within a mile of one’s home. So I dont understand the rationale.
