Statement: Should local train tickets be subsidized?

Argument I: No, In an environment where locals trains are overcrowded, subsidy will worsen the situation.

Argument II: Yes, Local trains reduce number of vehicles on the road, thus reducing pollution, reduce costs and travel time.

decreasing the number of passengers opting other mode of transportation for commuting.

Argument I: Increasing the number of passengers in the trains would overcrowd the already overcrowded trains, clearly worsen the situation of overcrowding which could pose a threat to the safety of the passengers. Notice, The argument I shows that subsidizing the ticket would have a Direct Negative Impact on the over-crowding problem of the local train. The argument clearly compliment the answer No.

So, arguement I is strong.

Argument II: Increasing the number of passengers in the trains would negatively impact the number of vehicles on the road, thus reducing pollution, costs and travel time. Notice, subsidizing the ticket would have a Direct Impact on the number of vehicles on the road, thus bringing the mentioned positives on the table. So, the argument compliment the answer Yes.

So, argument II is also strong.
