I like this idea. Perhaps the Community Services Agency could be a sales agent in Mountain View, depending on how "qualified low-income people" are identified.
The bus is an alternative to driving for a growing number of people and these low-rate fares should help bring in more riders--something VTA needs.
Full disclosure: I'm a Senior and don't drive any more. The Senior fare (also $25/month) is a very low cost way for me to commute to and from work.
