Finding Dedicated Funding For Public Transportation

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.

    Let me guess… the handout that Rendell gave them without actually fixing the issues has run out…. BIG SHOCKER!!!!!!!

    It is sad that an election year has the ability to stop the wheels from turning. Getting re-elected should not get in the way of doing the job that you hope to keep.

      Most people do choose to avoid the bus…. which is why more cuts should be made… Demand vs supply
