State Rep. Michael Sheehy (D-Oregon) today issued a statement announcing $1,468,714 in funding for public transit in Lucas County, which was passed with Democratic backing in the state’s transportation budget earlier this year.

“Toledo’s public transportation funding relies on an antiquated funding system that does not directly benefit those who pay for it,” said Sheehy. “There is a better way, and we need only look at other successful metropolitan areas whose economic success is driven by a more equitable, well-funded transportation system. These funds will be critical to ensuring TARTA can carry Toledo into the future.”
