Bus improvement list available soon

dhinshaw@thestate.comSeptember 17, 2012 

As early as Wednesday, the Regional Transit Authority will produce a list of specific plans for revenues from a proposed penny sales tax.

RTA director Bob Schneider said in an interview Monday morning that voters “want real specific detail” about how the $301 million would be spent.

He said he is preparing a list to distribute to community groups that will specify where new bus stops and shelters would be located and commit to paper improvements such as the purchase of small buses, expanded hours, park and ride sites, and the restoration of Sunday service.

Richland County voters decide Nov. 6 on a local sales tax for transportation improvements, including bus service.

The State is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
