State funding cuts are forcing Ludington public transit to cut corners. In July, the LMTA will stop transporting riders to and from Amber Township. Amber is the only township serviced by the LMTA that pays no taxes for the transportation. Over 20,000 annual riders use the service to get to Amber to shop, eat, and work. Employees formerly dependant on the public transit busses will have to find new ways to get to their jobs every day. LMTA executives worry about these negative repercussions and aim to solve the problem with cooperation from Amber businesses.
