F.C. GEORGE Bus Task Force Report Calls for Further Scaling Back

Falls Church’s citizens task force on its beleaguered GEORGE bus service presented its report to the F.C. City Council tonight, calling for further scaling back the service at a net cost to the City of $117,000.

Ironically, keeping the service alive will be cheaper for City taxpayers than terminating the service, altogether. With the buses deemed of no re-sale value, the City would wind up owing the federal government $250,000 for the buses if it abandoned the program, according to the report.
