Message from PA Governor: Fracking, good. #Transit, bad.

Town and Country Transit ridership is up for the second quarter in a row compared to last year. Nonetheless, General Manager Patti Lynn Baker said the organization needs to prepare to work with less money next year.
Baker said at Wednesday's TACT authority meeting that expected funding for this year is in a good place, but the cash flow is sluggish and the outlook for 2012-13 is even more foreboding.
"It's kind of making things a little bit difficult (as) daily operations go," she said. "Things are a little rocky as far as cash flow coming in, but the money is all there as far as all the grant money."
She expects the situation to turn around in the next few months, but said representatives for PennDOT have warned her to prepare for less funding next year.
