Cut in federal grant money leaves authority looking for funding
As demand increases, federal funding is decreasing and services are being cut for the Twin Cities Transit Authority (TCATA), better known as Dial-A-Ride. Bill Purvis, Dial-A-Ride's executive director, said there has been a 27 percent increase in the number of rides given by the authority since 2010 - from 172,660 to 219,167 rides.
