Dispute over proposed RTA takeover of Sun TranPosted: Updated:
The public buses run by Sun Tran don't stop at the city limits -- even though the agency is run by the city. Now, there's an effort to move management of Sun Tran to the Regional Transportation Authority.
Protesters packed city council chambers and outside there were groups of folks with signs protesting the Regional Transportation Authority's proposed take over of sun tran, set for July first.
Most bus riders and protesters fear a fare hike, but the city would like to have a say if RTA were to take over.
