Through 10 months they lost $12,405,171. The budget for all 12 months is to lose $16,350,921. They would have to work REALLY hard to lose all they budgeted!

Total ridership is up 18.55% over last year, the lesson learned is the more riders the bigger the losses.

  1. They LOSE $1,000,000 tax payer dollars every month. EVERY MONTH. This is NOT what success looks like. This is FAILURE! Every person working for Connect Transit and the board is responsible for this FAILURE.

  2. Connect Transit is having difficulty retaining employees because they are a drug a drug-free employer. Cannabis use is an issue.
