Bus service in La Porte County could be on borrowed time.

Yesterday....the county commissioners committed one more year

of funding.

Not three years....as originally sought.

Officials cited the Transit Triangle's very low ridership for not going beyond

one year.

County attorney Shaw Friedman suggested not making another long term commitment....

to see how things in the coming months......shake out.....

Commissioner Sheila Matias said more effective marketing of the service has been

discussed to try and bolster ridership enough to keep the buses rolling.

Right now...the city of La Porte...Michigan City and Purdue Northwest have

agreed to pitch in financially for another three years...
