The bus system proves 1.5 million rides in Racine, Mount Pleasant, Caledonia, Sturtevant and the Grandview Industrial Park in Yorkville.
The service is funded through passenger fares, and municipal, state and federal taxes. Al Stanek, transit and parking systems manager, is proposing to cut services on Sundays and/or on nights after 7:10 p.m., which is when the ridership is lowest. Making the cuts would save $140,000. He also proposed increasing the DART and paratransit rates by $3 to $4 per ride.
What do you think should be done to make up the shortfall?
- Caledonia: $28,582
- Sturtevant: $37,083
- Mount Pleasant: $177,698
- Racine: $1.1 million
