Green Calls For New Public Transit Funding Strategy

Independent mayoral candidate Jackie Green says he wants to see a change in how public transportation is funded in Louisville.Green held a press conference Tuesday outside of TARC headquarters to say more money for the city's bus system should come from the state and federal governments."Louisville needs a mayor that will go to Frankfort, be committed to public transit and send a message to Frankfort that 'We're not coming to you asking for money for bridges, we're not coming to you asking to reconfigure highways. We're coming to Frankfort asking for money for public transit,'" he says.TARC is funded primarily through the city's occupational tax.Green is one of at least three independent candidates for mayor. Three Republicans and eight Democrats are also running.
