SOME places there is public transportation; a LOT of places there is none.

Yeah, they could hire a cab to drive them around.
$10. for a 5 mile ride. plus tip
How would you like the money you "give" them to be used that way?
Or do you expect people to walk 10 miles RT? How many kids should do that, how about with or without
sidewalks? on the highway?
Please.

I walked, and/or rode a bike as a kid/young man to get to work. I didn't die, and I'm not fat. Why should it be any different now?

For one thing there are triple the vehicles on the road, for another we are talking about parents with young children (welfare, remember?)
so how many trips to the supermarket should a person make to buy groceries for the week with bags in a basket and the child...oh, where do
we put the child?
If it is people with disabilities you are thinking of the likelihood of being able to bike around is significantly lower than for able persons.
There are probably many other reasons ...
Then there is how much better it would be if the general population used public transportation especially now that the electric bus is gaining
in affordability.

Where I live the city buses have bike racks, and most are equipped to accommodate the handicapped. Plus, there are other agencies, and services available to transport the disabled.
I don't see where it is the responsibility of the taxpayers to provide everyone with an operational vehicle.

I do believe it is called a civilized society.
Where you live is really not indicative of other regions.
Have you priced those services to transport the disabled?
You are right about one thing, though.
You really don't see.

Oh, I see alright. You think everyone is entitled to everything in spite of their life choices. Some work hard for what they have, so they should share it with those who don't. I don't see that as being civilized at all. I see that as being enablers of bad choices, and behaviors.

Everything? How long has it been, Archie, since you have ridden on one of those vehicles?
Seriously? Everything?
And yes, as we work hard and share, we create a better world.
Isn't that an investment that we all benefit from?
I think that we need to, once again, agree to disagree.
See ya around the site.

Well, the only other thing I know to tell you is to go to Autozone, and see for yourself. It's right there on the door on the sign showing what cards they accept.


Where in the country does that go on?

Plenty of people on food-assistance are working, were you unaware of that? Some states even require a work-requirement

Taking the bus is great if it is on a route any where near where you live & or work.

I've seen it on the sign on their front door. Just Google Auto zone EBT and see what you get.
Then come back, and apologize!


I know this is old, I can't pass up the chance to agree with Archie.
EBT cards are not for food, they are the cash payments. I think it is a great idea
for EBT card holders to save $$ by picking up their own parts.

IF one lives where there IS public transportation. One bus a day does not really cut it.
