As the funding neared its end, Battle Creek officials gave final approval to shut down some bus routes in the Beckley Road area.

Battle Creek officials recommend cutting transit services

Lead in text: 
City Commission is expected to take up issue on February fourth
City officials said their hands are tied, and without the money, transit services paid for by federal grant dollars will have to be eliminated before funding runs out in mid-February. "Personally, and as a manager, I wish we weren't here," Battle Creek Transit Manager Rich Werner said during a public meeting Tuesday afternoon.
