PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – Public transportation in Pennsylvania is in trouble due to a lack of dedicated funding from Harrisburg, and it might be some time before the State Legislature even looks at a solution.

Ken Zapinski of the Allegheny Conference says there are viable revenue streams Harrisburg could be looking at, but with time running out this year and an election year coming next year, it may be too late to fix the problem.

He talks to KDKA AM’s Larry and John about solutions to public transportation funding, and how if we don’t do something, we’ll all be paying for the ramifications of diminished public transportation.
