TAPS Public Transit Interim Chief Executive Officer, Tim Patton, announced on Thursday, January 21 that an additional 10 employees have been laid off, effective immediately. The reduction in staffing saves $400,000 in wages and benefits.

“As we continue to reduce operational responsibility to focus on processing reimbursements, our staffing needs are changing,” said Patton.

A key action item is the procurement of a contract for transit management services. The contract —proposals are due by February 15, 2016—  will hire an outside company to take over operations in the six-county service area that includes, Clay, Cooke, Fannin, Grayson, Montague, and Wise counties.
