Cuts in transit service

Via ABH:

To offset revenue that has fallen by millions of dollars in recent months, Athens-Clarke officials likely will both raise some taxes and fees and cut spending. Among the dozens of proposals:

► Reducing bus frequency along Hawthorne Avenue, saving $158,000.

► Eliminating The Link, an on-demand van service, saving $54,000.

► Raising adult bus fares by 25 cents, generating about $375,000.
