It is not difficult to characterize the Regional Bus Authority as an agency in its death throes. The agency's executive director, Tim Brown, is left without an ongoing service to direct because the agency ran out of money.
The Northwest Indiana Regional Bus Authority is at a crossroads to determine the future mission, goals and objectives of the agency.
