MISSOULIAN EDITORIAL: Missoula rallies for public transportation

missoulian.com: " As ridership increases, so does the need to provide stable, long-term funding for transportation infrastructure.

This is true for Mountain Line as well, which relies on federal funding for transportation infrastructure in addition to community support in order to offer innovative new options like zero-fare service. The three-year demonstration project was boosted with $460,000 in sponsorships from 14 different community partners, including the Missoulian. Additionally, Mountain Line added 15-minute BOLT! service to one of its routes, and began offering service late into the evening."
