55 This synthesis represents the first comprehensive attempt to identify those transit systems that currently utilize, or at one time utilized, a fare-free policy. A report completed for the city of San Francisco in 2008 could identify only six public transit systems that oper- ated on a fare-free basis (8). A few of the transit managers of fare- free systems indicated that they thought they were the only transit agency in the country providing fare-free service. It is hoped that this listing will help them communicate to their mutual benefit, and make it easier for others who are considering implementing fare- free service to contact them for more information on their expe- riences.
