AC Transit to Make More Cuts
This past Sunday AC Transit reduced its service by 7.2 percent as part of the second phase in a plan to balance its budget. A reduction of 7.8 percent was made in March, which has saved the organization about $10 million.
The most recent cuts are aimed to evenly reduce service rather than completely eliminate certain routes altogether.
Unfortunately, a further reduction has been approved for December. Half of AC Transit’s weekend service and four out of six all-night bus lines will be cut.
