There are a number of factors contributing to the congestion of public transport in metropolitans. Some people believe that the government should be responsible for the improvement of traffic condition and public transport should be provided without charge in 24 hours a day every week. However, it would be argued that this statement is flaw for a number of reasons, which will be explained.
The reason why it is not advisable to operate free public transport 24/7 is that both the construction of public transport services and the investment in the transport systems are under the control of the government who spent a large sum of money to guarantee the effective and efficient operation of transport. In this way, insufficient funds caused by the expensive transport services would therefore result in the impossibilities of the government responsible for other public services such as education and medical insurance.
On the other hand, the frequent use of public transport would lead to the exhale of large quantities of exhaust fumes such as carbon dioxide and toxic gases, meaning that the solution to traffic congestion is at the expense of the environment. In addition, providing free public transport is a burden to people who worked in public services, in midnight hours in particular, which in turn may influence the urban transport networks.
Yet there are significant advantages of providing free public transport 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, as people have no concerns regarding the crowded space of transport. However, people may not make full use of the traffic transport and it would be a waste of resources.
In conclusion, although traffic condition may be improved by providing free public transport 24/7, it is not absolutely the only solution to the congestion of traffic issue. It should be suggested that other methods would also work efficiently if people are encouraged to use public transport instead of private cars.
