Star Tran Director Looks to Improve Lincoln Transportation



LINCOLN -- The new head of Star Tran wants to explore establishing a transit authority to help pay for improvements to Lincoln's public transportation system. On KFOR's Coby Mach Show, Start Tran Executive Director, Mike Davis, said he would like to see a funding structure similar to what Omaha has, a transit authority where money is levied from property taxes. That would require legislative action at the state level. There's a lot of discussion to come, but this is the first time a transit authority has surfaced as a way of improving Start Tran.
