Port Authority Says They Need At Least $30 Million To Stop Planned Cuts

PITTSBURGH (NEWSRADIO 1020 KDKA) — Port Authority spokesperson Jim Ritchie says everyone is serious about doing whatever they can to stop Sunday’s planned cuts to service, but despite Amalgamated Transit Union Local 85’s Pat McMahon’s promise that they have a “historic” concession deal from the union, no official talks have occurred.

Ritchie tells Larry and John that it will take at least $30 million to stop Sunday’s planned service cuts and layoffs.
