Indiana Transit Agencies, Advocates push for Funding

A coalition of bus agencies and mass transit advocates in Indiana have called for passage of House Bill 1215, which would hike state support to mass transit agencies to $60 million per year from its current $42.5 million. Accessing Community Transportation in Northwest Indiana (ACT NOW) states the funding is needed locally as bus systems such as Gary Public Transportation Corp. and North Township Dial-A-Ride steadily increase ridership.

ACT NOW is made up of GPTC, East Chicago Public Transportation, the North Township Trustee's Dial-A-Ride and the disability-rights advocacy group Everybody Counts.
