TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Riders who rely on Sunday and holiday bus service in Toledo are bracing for the end of that service due to budget cuts.

The board of trustees of the Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority approved a measure Dec. 6 to reduce spending by about $2.4 million.

The Blade reports the move was designed to deal with most of the bus agency’s budget shortfall of about $3.4 million.

Trustees said the cuts were necessary after the agency failed to put a proposal to replace two tax levies on the Nov. 6 ballot. Sunday and holiday service ends beginning Jan. 6.

Bus riders who need transportation for jobs and church say they’re looking for other options, including rides from friends or family.
