UF proposes funding cuts to Gainesville Regional Transit program

 The Gainesville Regional Transit System, originally introduced in 1988, provides unlimited bus service for University of Florida students, faculty and staff.  To provide this service, UF currently contributes $13.7 million to the system. However,  a new proposal beginning July 1 would allow UF to make monthly payments of $570,000, totaling to $6.8 million, and a decreased contribution of over 50%.

GRU remodels Gainesville services relationships, still split on GSC

In its Feb. 6 meeting, the Gainesville Finance Committee worked to revise the city’s budget to make up for the $1.4 million in payments withheld by the Gainesville Regional Utilities Authority. Its proposal, which the City Commission will discuss Feb. 15, makes up the difference by dipping into contingency funds for designated programs such as at-risk youth and gun violence prevention.
