The below is what the City of Bloomington has in this year’s budget for Public Transportation:
Bloomington has more than doubled what they give Connect Transit. Yes, that structural deficit is the Council’s fault. Even with more of your money, CT continues to lose between $800,000 and $900,000 every month.
Tomorrow the City Council is holding a meeting at The Den at Fox Creek. They plan to discuss “painful” budget cuts.
Unfortunately, anybody who uses Connect Transit can’t attend the meeting. It’s not on a route.
Ironic, isn’t it?
