public transit doesnt make sense because it is impossible to make it profitable and it has to be heavily subsidized by the government! the private sector is more efficient! *capitalist ride sharing services also turn out to not be profitable and are heavily subsidized by investors* ah, nevertheless,

@dankwraith just like how investors are finding schools could be profitable if not for the kids, they're finding transport could be profitable if not for the riders
