PDRTA PUBLIC COMMENTS ON SERVICE RECOMMENDATIONS

 
Public Comments

posted on Thursday, June 07, 2012

PDRTA is working to balance our Fiscal Year 2013 budget which begins July 1, 2012.  There currently is an extremely large deficit based on projected costs and revenue.  PDRTA's revenue has been in decline in recent years and, without a reversal the only option is to reduce services and/ or increase fares.  These actions are very difficult and regrettable.  However, it is necessary for us to look at where our services are most costly and the amount of use does not justify continued operations.  We are working hard to minimize these actions and sustain services.  For those actions planned, public comments are encouraged and welcome and will be considered with regard to final decisions made.

Public comments can be submitted in writing to PDRTA at 313 South Stadium Road - P.O. Box 2071, Florence, SC 29503-2071, or can be submitted by telephone to Transportation Manager Don Strickland at 843-665-2227, Ext 136.  The deadline to submit comments by is June 20, 2012.

In addition to the above, to receive comments in person, the following public hearings are scheduled.
