They say rolling stones gather no moss, but thanks to a compassionate new program by the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority, they can now gather passes to ride the county's public transit system for free.
With over 7,200 people estimated to be homeless in the county, the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority is hoping that this initiative will help its less fortunate citizens get around a little easier. With an estimated price tag over over 110,000 dollars, the initiative is one of the largest homeless public transit programs in the United States and will hopefully encourage other counties throughout the country to follow suit.
