The Allen County RTA met for their monthly meeting to discuss multiple different topics including levy updates, service reduction updates and the Lima Locos.

The Lima Locos baseball team has requested the RTA for transportation to away games. They were able to offer that service to the Locos during the last baseball season. However, after the levy failed in November, funding has become tight and resulted in multiple service cuts, which could impact any future transportation agreement with the Lima baseball team. 

According to Board of Trustees President, Brad Taylor, "We've definitely had to cut some services, we started with Saturday service and some of the evening services but again we've worked with some of the area organizations, listening to what they're needs are and trying to re-instate some of the services that they need. Especially with jobs because we just know so many people in the community depend on the RTA."

While the board has not yet made a final decision regarding the Locos, they will continue to discuss multiple options with the team
