Save the Papillion La vista Ralston 93 Bus
We the undersigned, request that the cities of Papillion,La Vista, and Ralston continue funding for the Tri community 93x bus route served by Omaha Metro bus service. The service has been operating for almost 40 years. The ridership will increase under the proposed Metro plan to streamline the service. This route serves a wide spectrum of citizens and businesses in Ralston, LaVista and Papillion. The route carries regular and intermittent riders. Some passengers ride during the winter when snowy weather is eminent or their car is being repaired. The bus serves teachers, students and workers going to Omaha to the Downtown and Midtown area. Other passengers use the bus coming from Omaha to work in businesses in the Ralston-La Vista-Papillion area. Papillion’s Annual Funding for the bus is $7000 which represents .01% of their budget. Likewise LaVista’s funding is $8600 which is .07% of their budget. The impact of this funding is minimal to the cities' budgets and should therefore not be considered an unwanted use of tax payers money.
