San Diego transit to reduce services

Posted on January 22, 2009

The North County Transit District (NCTD) will implement service reductions on the Breeze bus system.

A decrease in revenues derived from sales tax and significantly reduced transit assistance from the State of California has forced NCTD to reduce service levels in order to balance the budget. NCTD faces ongoing budget challenges, as the State of California is considering the permanent elimination of State Transit Assistance funding.

 

"We recognize that everyone is being impacted in some way by the downturn in the economy and that our services are a lifeline that connects many of our customers to jobs, educational opportunities and medical facilities," says NCTD Executive Director Matthew Tucker. "Over the next few months, NCTD will be assessing our current operations to determine how to better deliver vital transportation services to all of our customers in light of the current budget situation."

The agency will eliminate a total of six bus routes. However, one route, 347 in San Marcos will begin serving the CSU San Marcos Sprinter station and the Barham Drive, Woodland Parkway and West Valley Parkway areas, and will have revised weekday-only operating hours.
