Has there been a major funding cut in Rome ATAC?

Jump to last reply

Over the past 8+ days I have noticed that there seems to be far fewer buses than normal in Rome. As an example, both last night and today at Colosseo, waiting for an 87, last night did not arrive for an hour, today not even on the electronic board. Same thing with the 40, 3, 19, etc.

I admit that normally there seems to be an abundance of them, regardless of the line, but now it seems like they never come or don't exist. I come here often in February and cannot seem to recall it being like this before. This has nothing to do with the storm, as it has been decent weather for the last few days.

The only thing I can figure is that there has been a funding cut to mass transit. I understand the need to reign in the budget, but boy would I try to keep the normally fantastic transit system going.

Oh well, even a reduced system here is a million times better than pretty much any mass transit we have in the States, except for maybe NYC and a few others.
