MTA Cuts Service Again

Oct 11, 2010

The Los Angeles MTA recently decided to cut bus service by 4%, effective December 12 of this year. Art Leahy had the nerve to say “We are running service that is excessive.”

If anything, there is a lack of bus service. Demand for buses is increasing. With the high gas prices, high unemployment and big cuts in wages and hours for many workers, more people are depending on buses and trains to get where they have to go.

Cutting bus service is practically criminal.
