Council members should use mass transit

Why not amend NYC Council member Dan Garodnick’s bill requiring employers with 20 or more workers to sign up for transit checks to also include all 51 NYC council members, along with several hundred council staff? Council member Garodnick and his 50 colleagues can all give up their free parking spaces at City Hall. They and their staff can use transit checks to purchase MetroCards. 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.
