Take a look at these numbers from the city’s 2017 official Comprehensive Annual Financial Report:
Despite the major investments that Sun Metro has been making, money collected from passengers decreased $676 thousand from the prior year.
At the same time they got $862 thousand more from our sales taxes.
While ridership revenue was down their operating expenses increased $1.1 million.
That in spite of the fact that their fuel expenses decreased $774 thousand.
We deserve better
