Service cuts beyond imagination (in Pittsburgh)

Budget issues are creating the worst possible scenario for public transportation users in Pittsburgh.  The proposed plan includes not only a fare increase but also severe service cutbacks. 46 of the current 102 bus routes would be eliminated! 

Governor Corbett’s actions (or inaction) to deal with Pittsburgh’s situation will be an indicator on how well he will handle budget issues that appear to also be on the horizon for SEPTA.
