Funding loss threatens Isle bus service

More than four years after Hurricane Ike slammed into Galveston, tearing down homes and damaging the citys historic trolley system, the ensuing population loss threatens to diminish bus service for island residents.Because of Ike displacements, Galveston slipped below 50,000 in the 2010 decennial census, making it ineligible for direct federal transit funds. Rather than receive its own transit money as a small urban area, the dip below 50,000 means Galveston is Texas biggest rural area and will compete for statewide transit funds.
