BREAKING: Effects of Malloy’s budget on Transportation

I’ve had about 10 minutes to look through a really big budget book, so bear with me. Keep in mind, this is the PROPOSED budget that the legislature needs to approve.

What I can glean right now is —

Bus fares will increase from $1.25 to $1.50 beginning in 2014.

ADA paratransit fares will increase 4% beginning in 2014.

The non-ADA Dial-a-Ride program will be eliminated.

Town aid for roads will be shifted to the state’s credit card to the tune of $120 million over two years.

Stay tuned.
