Tuesday, the busses were free to encourage people to go vote. You didn't even have to have a sticker or anything. It was a nice little sentiment. Then, one of the driver/maintenance unions that CapMetro uses went on strike on Wednesday. They trimmed down all the routes to just the main thoroughfare routes (which is fine with me, since those are the routes I use, anyway). As a consolation offering of sorts, the busses that remain in operation are all free.
I really do understand all this, but I just bought an unlimited pass for the month on Monday night. As an ultra-frugal person, I wish I'd just waited until the strike was over.
