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.
