Lauderhill Plans to Cut Back Community Shuttle Buses

On May 16 at 6:30 pm at the Lauderhill City Hall, the City Commission will be voting on cutting back the hours on the 5 Lauderhill Community Shuttle Buses from 60 hours/week to 36 hours/week. The reason for the reduced hours is to reduce the cost of the bus system to the city by approximately $195,000.

Over the years, the Broward County has been reducing the support for the Community Shuttle Bus Program, and now only provides $15/revenue hour. The cost is just under $32/revenue hour to operate, which the difference is paid for by the city.

Previously, Mayor Kaplan was the only vote against the recent prior budget adjustment which reduced funding for the Shuttle Bus system.

All routes and times will be effected.
