Connect Transit receives state funds, avoids shutdown

Posted on December 1, 2016

NORMAL, Ill. — Pantagraph reports that the state Comptroller’s Office has paid Connect Transit its first quarter operating reimbursement for fiscal year 2017, allowing the agency to avoid temporarily shutting down its bus service.

The agency announced Thursday that the payment of almost $1.9 million covers the time period of July 2016 through September 2016 and is part of a nearly $17.6 million transfer to the Downstate Public Transportation Fund.

Without the funding, Connect Transit expected to temporarily suspend service in January. For the full story, click here.
