Demonstrators Demand Sunday Bus Service
Bus Riders United continues to push for Sunday bus service in the region.
The group staged a demonstration Wednesday outside the Downtown bus terminal in New Bedford, urging the Southeast Regional Transit Authority to run busses on Sunday.
Siggy Meilus organized the protest…..
But Serta Administrator Erik Rousseau says there are no quick solutions.
Rousseau tells WBSM News there is no money in this year’s budget to extend bus service to Sunday, but he’ll keep working with state lawmakers to find additional funding for regional transit authorities like SERTA.
