In China, there's no ticket checker in public buses. Certainly, it's not free but the fine is quite cheap and anyone who uses the bus will automatically put money in a box in the bus. I think that's great! Pity there are still so few examples.
But how can you tell if someone has paid the correct money. It isn't fair that someone should have to pay more than another to travel

However, those free tickets are bought from the taxes money. Thus, in a way, they pay for their own tickets. There is no free things in our society. To me, the unrealistic about the main communist idea is that things need to be shared. In capitalist society things are traded.
When you live in a society that things should be shared, it's hard to maintain. For once, there would be people who gave more than others, but everything had to be shared equally. Therefore, at the end they would be really disappointed for living in a society that they gave more and got the same amount as like others. In a society that things are traded people trade whatever they have to get something in a similar amount. If they don't have anything, they would trade to get what they need by working. To me, this is best system.
No, I don't want to live in a society that we change one thing for another. People's consciousness and attitude of people are one of the factors to make up a Communist society, that is, I suppose, too far for us to reach. Thus, such a type of society will never exist. But I don't think of such a great issue. I just think free public transport is possible. It can be free in different ways. For instance, school buses and office buses are often free or very cheap. People can pay every month or even for the whole year so they don't have to worry about travelling. That's just a way to encourage people to use public transport.

In my town is no one... or at least I don't know none... Traffic is today too danger for bicycle and I can't let my bicycle nowhere, because of thieves. And it's also needed to educate drivers better to drive.. and also to care about nature, owning a big car with big engine is lame.
