At this time, it is expected that the slowing economy and fallout from the September 11 tragic events will result in a ridership of only 418 million rather than the 422 million previously projected.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and, at year-end, request a draw from the Riders Reserve necessary to offset this unexpected downturn in ridership.

• 2001 Wheel-Trans Operating Budget

The current projected year-end unaccommodated rate for Wheel-Trans remains at 3.5% and there is no projected budget shortfall.

• 2001 - 2005 Capital Program

The 2001 year-end cash flow is currently projected to be under budget by approximately $14.8 million; and
