The OCTA does have $212 million in federal stimulus money, but can't use those funds to maintain bus service. The funds can be used to repair or replace the buses, but most of it is earmarked for highway work or rail service.
Salaries of OCTA officials and bus drivers are expected to be frozen as a result of the loss of state revenue.
