2007 House Bill 4928: Limit subsides to low rider revenue transit systems
  1. Introduced by Rep. David Agema (R) on June 19, 2007, to require that local bus systems subsidized by state road tax dollars generate at least 20 percent of their operating revenue from fares paid by riders. The bill would not limit the amount of capital costs that government could subsidize, such as the purchase of new buses and equipment.
    • Referred to the House Transportation Committee on June 19, 2007.

Get the governments hand out of all transit systems. Let's have private bus systems. I'll bet it would work alot better.

Gee, at least 20%.  by changeagent on June 22, 2007 
This sounds like a good idea but, it sure is striking that we need a law to stop subsidizing a system that can't even generate 20% of the revenue needed to operate.
