Lucas Co. commissioners form task force to review TARTA funding
TARTA is thinking about making a change to their bus routes, and they want your input.

TOLEDO (WTOL) - Last week, TARTA’s board voted in favor of an eight percent cut to its service.

On Tuesday, Lucas County Commissioners called for the reinstatement of Sunday and holiday service for TARTA customers.

Commissioners are also forming a special citizens task force who will be reviewing the future long-term funding and sustainability of the transit authority

“Let’s examine the current system and help make recommendations for a change. I think people need to hear what’s really going on and bring all the issues to light so we can have a strong transportation system moving forward,” said Tina Skeldon Wozniak, Lucas County commissioner.

The special citizens task force will report back to commissioners with recommendations.
