In Colorado Springs, Colorado it seems that too many people have figured out how to abuse the  public transit system with a disability card. I say NO MORE FREE RIDES  and I am disabled myself on a tight budget.

I don’t want the possibility of  hard working folks who depend on the city bus; the students, the eldely or the disabled to lose an afforadable means of transportation in our city because the cheaters have depleted the bus system’s funds. I don’t want good city employees to not get their paychecks on time or even lose a job because too many abuse the disability card.
