Sylvania Township trustees have voted to contribute $2,500 toward Sunday bus service by TARPS for bus transportation on Sundays. The funds will go to the Area Office on Aging which has taken a lead role in getting TARPS service resumed after it and other services were curtailed in a cost-saving move by TARTA.
The contribution came on a unanimous vote arising from a motion made at an earlier meeting by trustee Neal Mahoney. He said he’d been in discussions with county officials on long-term actions underway meant to deal with regional public transportation.
He added that making a contribution of the effort to keep TARPS active on Sundays was a way to show “we’re serious about regional transportation.
TARPS Sunday service, for the elderly and disabled was resumed with local contribution and a federal grant. The money will go toward the total of nearly $330,00 needed to keep the service through the end of the year.
