Half-fare for Veterans

To encourage Veterans to use Public Transportation, I recommend that Congress amend Section 5307(d)(1)(D) of Title 49 of the U.S. Code to include that Veterans presenting military identification cards during the operation of off peak-hour, fixed route service are entitled to travel for half the peak fixed route fare. This will grant non-disabled Veterans the same level of benefit as the elderly, persons with disabilities, or passengers presenting Medicare cards, to show our country's appreciation for their military service.
