Bus service survives federal budget cutting
By SUSAN JENSEN
. Staff Writer
- Fears of lost bus service around
Chapel Hill and Carrboro were
allayed by Congress's veto this
summer of an administration prop
osal to cut over $500,000 in aid to
the area's public transportation.
Earlier this summer, Chapel Hill
Transit officials had been concerned
that federal funding would be cut,
.according to Alan Tobias, assistant
manager of the Transit company.
, Congress, however, blocked the
proposal in a recent session, and no
change to that budget is foreseen,
, The presidential administration
has tried for six years to rescind all
or part of the $991,000 in subsidies
.that make up one-third of Chapel
, Hill's $3,000,000 transportation
.budget, he said.
Those efforts have been part of
a nationwide campaign to cut
.corners on the public transportation
.budget, he said, and all districts with
public transportation faced the
threat of lost subsidies.
A few municipalities have private
transportation systems which make
,them ineligible for federally funded
R.L. Banks, a Washington con
sultant firm, had estimated that
Chapel Hill Transit could have lost
between $100,000 and $595,000,
based on governmental figures.
Funding for the bus system would
have expired Sept. 30.
The Transit had hired Banks to
come up with a contingency plan
outlining rate hikes, route reschedul
ing and other necessary changes if
the subsidies were cut.
Although there is now no need for
the plan, the town has increased the
transportation tax by 1.5 cents to 7
cents per $100 of assessed property
This will provide the bus system
with a $140,000 surplus. Chapel Hill
Town Manager David R. Taylor has
said he hopes to raise tax rates

become independent fron federal

UNC events and reflections of

"Well have a very good time

good judgment, talent, "sparkle of
intellect" and good upbringing.
Freshmen should take advantage
of the many opportunities for per

Carolina, he said. Besides expanding
their knowledge and understanding,
freshmen should grow in the capacity
to express themselves, in the culti

need to learn "to deal with other

Williamson also warned students

It also takes less time to make

a lot faster."
