FTA Threatens Transit Funding

The Trumbull County Transit Board (TCTB) has until Monday to answer compliance questions and numerous other questions that have been lingering for years. If they cannot come up with answers, The Federal Transit Administration has informed TCTB that they will lose all or part of its federal funding, according to a letter sent to the board chairman, Robert Faulkner.

Faulkner said he was surprised by the letter because he thought everything the FTA needed already was turned over and he doesn’t believe the board is in danger of losing federal funding. The amount varies, but the board has received around $900,000 to $1 million in federal funds in the last few years.
