Citbus Urges Congress to Pass Transit System Flexibility Act

Citibus is now part of a nationwide effort urging Congress to pass the Transit System Flexibility Act of 2007.

They are joining a coalition to fight a federal rule that states certain transit systems including Citibus will not be allowed to use federal funds to operate service because their areas go over 200,000 in population which could lead to a significant reduction in bus service because of lack of funding.

The Transit System Flexibility Act was introduced by Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison to combat this federal rule.
