Bus cuts on the Northside


While the latest slew of Port Authority transit cuts will largely affect suburban routes and express buses, two Northside neighborhoods will suffer serious cuts.

On Wednesday, PAT announced that its latest 35 percent transit cut will eliminate bus service to Fineview and Manchester, as well 100 other neighborhoods throughout the region if the service reduction passes.

Riders throughout the City will also see a 25-cent increase for Zone 1 rides and a 50-cent increase for Zone 2 rides.

The Authority board will vote on the service reductions on April 27. Until then Port Authority is encouraging citizens and stranded riders to contact their local representatives.
