“If you were to design the ultimate system, you would have mass transit be free and charge an enormous amount for cars.”
- Mayor of New York Michael Bloomberg
The annual free public transport day occurs on the first Saturday of March and was first celebrated by the swedish commuter network Planka.nu with a large subway demonstration in the subway in Stockholm on the first of March 2008.
This year the free public transport day will be celebrated on March 3 and we hope that everyone of you will join us in the celebration! In Stockholm there will, among other things, be political rallies and opening of barriers in the public transport system.
We have set up the webpage http://www.freepublictransportday.com/ where everyone can send in information about what activities they will be doing on that day, as well as reports and pictures afterwards. (please mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org and then we’ll publish them)
