Dallas transit executives recently warned about the impact a slow economy is having on bus and rail services.
Dallas, Texas (WiredPRNews.com) – Dallas transit officials have expressed concerns over the impact of the economy on local bus and rail services. As reported by the Dallas Morning News, executives with the Dallas Area Rapid Transit warned this week that the economic circumstances would likely lead to a reduction in rail and bus services, as well as present problems for completion of a rail line downtown.
David Leininger, DART’s chief financial officer, is quoted in the report as stating of the matter, “Large capital projects that are not currently under construction simply do not fit within your revised financial plan unless you make significant cuts in service levels… Meaning, that one comes at the expense of the other. And it’s important to note that even if we didn’t do any capital expansion, then existing service levels will still have to be reduced.”
