Connect Transit Holding Out Faith State Funds Will Come Through
The head of the Twin Cities' bus service says he has faith the state will come through with downstate bus money by the end of the year. But Connect Transit General Manager Andrew Johnson says there are no guarantees. Illinois' budget allows the state to spend the money on downstate buses. But the state simply doesn't have any money in the bank. The Comptroller's office hopes to start seeing money in December.
