PAT dead, revived in 24 hours; still in critical condition
On Wednesday, Save Our Transit activisits discovered that the proposed County transit budget did not include enough money to receive state matching funds. That disaster scenario could have meant the shutdown of the Port Authority Transit system altogether. Early Thursday, a brief reprieve was granted when the County agreed to provide the funds, after a deluge of calls and planned actions at this evening's County Council meeting.

Port Authority is still faced with a shortfall in state funding that will force it to shut down several routes, eliminate all weekend and evening schedules, and increase the base fare by almost 50% to $2.50, cuts that will take effect no later than 3 months from now.
