Uber not impacting Citibus, GM says

The ride-hailing service, Uber, is not impacting Citibus.

General Manager, Maurice Pearl, said the number of passengers using public transportation has not changed since Uber began operating here.

Whether Citibus's routes will change in the next fiscal year is still uncertain. City Council has not voted on the bus service's budget request that includes more money to offset grant funds Citibus was denied.

"If the budget is passed, then for Citibus it won't be an issue for route 19. But when we look at service that we have to eliminate first, route 19 is our first route that we would look at," Pearl said.

He said the budget proposal also includes adding bus service one day a week to the DPS office at the business park. 

The nearest bus stop now is two miles away.
