Every economist knows that cars are subsidized

The turning point of public transport: “All economists know that the driver does not pay the negative externalities caused by his car. Despite what he thinks in general, the motorist is subsidized with public money even though it is a particularly destructive and polluting private trip. And at the same time, we do charge users of public transport and debate more or less regularly for the opportunity to raise their rates!” via Free Public Transport Europe CARFREE.FR (in French)
