Looks Like Us Bus Riders Get the Bill Again.

"It's not appropriate to ask the poorest of the poor to fill this deficit. We need to think of better long term planning . . . We can't continue to come back year after year asking bus riders to fill a deficit."-Anita Halasz

Last week, the Transportation Advisory committee voted "YES" to an increase in cash fares on riders to close the $3.3 Million deficit in NICE's budget.

The county AND Veolia, NICE Bus operator, cannot expect to constantly take money from riders and keep service at the same sub-par level. It is highway robbery.
