Skip to comments.Madison (WI) to require IDs for bus riders with passes
Posted on 11/10/2012 9:43:06 AM PST by UB355
University of Wisconsin students and employees have unlimited ride passes. There are concerns the bus passes are being used fraudulently. So, beginning Monday, an employment or school photo ID will be required.
UW-Madison employee and student bus passes are non-transferable. So, if the users don't have their IDs, the passes will be confiscated and a 1-day pass will be offered.

What a concept!
Shouldn’t there be an exception for anybody using this bus to go vote?
I just can’t wrap my mind around it.
Hell! What a novel idea! Imagine if you could use that for voting!.....er, uh....no, wait a minute!
No problem. You see, they aren’t capable of obtaining photo ID. It’s too difficult. It should reduce ridership.
“Imagine if you could use that for voting!”
BTW, reported on Fox several days ago, all the states Romney won had voter id.
I believe as a form of protest in states insisting on no voter id during the election, people should present a magazine subscription or library card when applying for any government service or paying any tax. If it’s good enough the election, it should be good enough for any other id requirement.
Women and minorities hardest hit.
Can’t do it. It discriminates against minorities and other poor people.
What!!!!???? ID cards? They can’t do that!!!! That’s racist. Straight up racism. Racey, racey, racists.
OH, I see. They want all those minorities who aren’t allowed to have photo ID to have to walk...
What do you expect from Madistan. It is okay if the students have no iD and they can vote, but if the students privileges are being infringed upon, the students are up in arms. Madistan has a huge homeless problem. The homeless are required to be out of the shelters in the AM, the homeless cannot go to the state capitol. the problem is the homeless issue and the students do not want the unwashed masses nearby them. he students whom graduate from madistan get the salary of 54K.
Cheating in Madistan? No effing way! By students? Don’t be absurd.
Er, uhm... Sarc
Holder will be all over this next week. Look for a suit against the state.
But that’s racist. Everyone knows that bus passes is code for poor, black, minorites in general. They are trying to suppress these groups by making it impossible for them to get on the bus. They can’t get IDs because they are illegal aliens (racist policy) or too poor (black and other minorities) can’t speak english (racial profiling agiain)
I think the student GOP should take them to court.
When will the lawsuits about rider suppression begin? Madison, WI requiring photo ID to use free bus passes.
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
This will work out just fine... Until the bus driver is beaten/stabbed/shot for trying to enforce this regulation.
This is just throwing GOP stupidity and nonchalance in their faces. The people came up with this probably couldn’t keep a straight face while sending out the press release.
Completely unacceptable! People who use public transportation can not be expected to have brains enough to get photo IDs! This is racist!
