so in the city where I live, people with disabilities can ride public transit for free.
but I always feel guilty about it. I don’t currently have a job now but when I do, I don’t know why it would be right to still not have to pay for it when everyone else has to.
fellow visually impaired friends of mine argue that it’s because we will never have the option of driving, which is true but a lot of people can’t even afford cars anyways
we’re also allowed to take one person with us for free but I know my way around better than a lot of people so I don’t need that either. but sometimes friends and family come with me and don’t need to pay but I’m not really using them to help me get around. I would be perfectly fine on my own.
what do you guys think? is it wrong to accept this kind of charitable service when you don’t necessarily need it or can pay for it yourself? there’s no specification by the government, as long as you have a certified card that says you are disabled, you’re eligible so it doen’st depend on income.
the city seems perfectly happy to provide the service so maybe I’m overthinking, I really dont’ know
