What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
Why not amend Councilman Dan Garodnick's bill requiring employers with 20 or more workers to sign up for TransitChek to also include all 51 City Council members, along with several hundred City Council staff members?
Garodnick and his 50 colleagues can all give up their free parking spaces at City Hall. They and their staff can use TransitChek to purchase Metro Cards.
This will afford them the opportunity to join several million constituents who use public transportation on a daily basis and also contribute to a cleaner environment.
