I am looking to gather some information for my Masters Capstone Project and would like to see if any of you can contribute.
I need information from first responders nationwide on any local government sponsored discount/subsidy for transit rates that are offered (for trolley, bus, etc). I would like to see if there are other cities that have offered their first responders these transit incentives and if so, how the program is working, what the financial impact is, etc.
If there is a city that already has a program like this in place, I would to study how they set their system up, how it was enacted, what the impacts are (positive/negative).
Thank you all for your time and I look forward to hearing from a lot of you soon.

Thanks Ryan -- I'll share this on USFRA facebook page too.
Thanks Janet. I have not heard from anyone yet. Is there any information that you could throw my way?
Sorry for delay in responding Ryan and I'll do some digging this wkend to see if I can find any data, stats, etc.
I live in Panama City Ryan and we have a Trolley system here, however, it only goes to designated areas and not all over town. No, there's no discount for First Responders as it's only $2 to ride.
Hi Ryan, Jesse is correct. I live in Panama City too (off and on) and there's no real transit system here. I also live part time in Ft. Lauderdale. There is a transit system there, but as far as I know there's no discount program for First Responders.
Update: I have finished my project and will be presenting to an audience this coming weekend. I will let you know who I was able to present it to (San Diego City leadership?) and how well it was received.
Thank you again!
Thanks Ryan and good luck with presentation. Sorry we weren't able to get more feedback for you ~ I dug thru web back in March for few hours but didn't have any luck finding anything. Look forward to hearing an update on how well it was received.
