RTA cards for seniors inconvenient, wasteful

Success - Article sent! close

If a senior citizen would like to get an RTA senior discount, he must get a separate RTA card. That takes weeks to get. Why not just let the senior use his driver's license and save millions for taxpayers? What were the state representatives thinking? (Creating a place to park relatives and pay rollers?)

We cannot afford this any more. The Better Government Association, the AARP and the Tea Party need to look in this costly harassment of senior citizens. Who appoints the RTA board, the governor? I think he needs a term limit.
