GREENSBORO N.C –  The area transit authority may cut late night bus services to save money during the 2012-2013 fiscal year.

According to Kevin Elwood of the Greensboro Transit Authority, the department has to cut over $200,000 from its budget and as a cost saving measure is considering eliminating its 11:30 p.m. bus routes.

Greensboro has 15 late-night routes and by cutting the latest route, the city would effect the fewest amount of people said Elwood.

Yvonne Rhodes uses the bus to get to her job at a nursing home in Greensboro said she may have to find another way to get to work.

 "I need to ride the bus. I don't have any other transportation," said Rhodes.

Rhodes said the possible change in service will leave her with limited options on how to back and forth between home and work.

The GTA will hold a series of public meetings before changes are made. The first meeting will be held at the Bus Depot in downtown Greensboro on Tuesday at 12:30 p.m.
