I disagree. I believe that transportation, like almost all ventures will be more efficient and more cost effective when owned by individuals or companies. 

Private enterprises are much more responsive to market forces than governments.

yes you could be right but don't you think that some individuls totaly depend on this ( public transportation) like it is what they get for living and with the control of the gov , they may not take their right completely !!

If you mean someone like a taxi driver or the owner or employees of a bus company, I believe that they will be more successful without government control. 

 

You could logically apply your argument to all sectors of the economy and say that the government should control them also, to make sure people earn enough money to live.

 

If you agree that allowing the free market to rule in other sectors is better, then why not in transportation?
