Janesville's Transportation Director, Dave Mumma.
14. Where's the survey study that Mumma gave to City Manager Clapper? 19. Mumma declared that this is an opportunity to ask, "Does this concept work? Wasn't that opportunity present during the last eight months? 20. If there's not a percentage 'per se' for matching the state's strap [Supplemental Transit Rural Assistance Program] grant, why did Mumma say that the state's taxpayers' fund 80% of the operating deficit of the program? It patently is a percentage. Mumma himself admits that a reduction in non-state funding would mean that "so yeah, the amount that we would get from strap would be proportionately less. Oh, brother. 21. Why doesn't Janesville Transportation Director Mumma know information on "the difference between Whitewater and Milton people and there's different fares depending on how far you ride," etc.? Unprepared, ill-informed shouldn't be the result of decades on the public payroll. 22. Why does Mumma calculate 2013 ridership projections by a dollar amount of the estimated farebox receipts? It's an absurdity: to estimate how many riders he'll have, Mumma takes estimated farebox contributions, and divides it by an estimated fare. But how much does he think those farebox contributions will be? Presumably he's had to estimate - ready? - how many people will be riding. So he gets ridership from farebox estimates, but he gets farebox estimates from...well, from what he knows farebox contributions have to be after all other money is received from state, local sources, etc. He doesn't have an independent, credible ridership estimate for 2013. Mumma actually say that, "I'm guessing that in order to generate the $54,000 in revenue we're going to have somewhere in the neighborhood of twenty to twenty-five thousand passengers." 23. If Mumma was unprepared last week - and he was - why couldn't he give more informed answers this week? It's also a rhetorical question.

"The trips that support employee access to jobs in Milton and Whitewater and student travel to UW-W for morning classes will continue as part of the service plan," Dave Mumma, Janesville Transit System director, said in an email. A definitive decision should be made after students return from winter break, Mumma said.

The new building will encompass 44,000 square feet, about twice the size of the current bus garage, said Dave Mumma, director of the Janesville Transit System. "It's federal money we're bringing back to Janesville that's providing jobs, initially, and it's providing a facility that's going to be serving Janesville for the next 50 years or more," Mumma said. "It must be an explosion-proof room, so it's built like a fort," Mumma said. The fueling/service bay and maintenance garage also have special ventilation requirements. The city is likely to consider natural gas-fueled buses when the city does "a major fleet replacement," but that won't be for another five years, at least, Mumma said. The buses, some of them 11 years old, are approaching the point where they will need to be replaced, Mumma said. The timing of a fleet replacement depends on federal funding, which now is in a state of flux. The reauthorization of federal public transit legislation is scheduled for next year, Mumma said. Why it's better: "It provides a fully equipped, up-to-date operations and maintenance facility for the transit system," Mumma said. "It means we are set up to have a good and modern base for our operations for decades to come. It's not something the community is going to have to go back and rebuild 10 years from now." The old bus garage is just barely big enough to get all the buses under one roof, Mumma said. The city's 17 buses are parked overnight in fuel bays, wash bays, maintenance bays and the center aisle. The new building has been designed to accommodate an expansion of up to 30 buses, Mumma said. Completion date: The most optimistic estimate is May, but weather or other problems could delay it to sometime in July, Mumma said. Finished product: The building's exterior will be mostly a reddish-brown brick, with green trim similar to that at the bus transit center on River Street, Mumma said. Mumma said the building will have a "modern" appearance. The building could have looked more industrial, but: "We wanted something that looks good sitting on that corner because it makes a statement about the community," Mumma said.


"As a member of the Assembly Committee on Transportation, (Kolste) is directly involved in policy and financial decisions that affect public transit service here in Janesville as well as throughout the state," said David Mumma, director of the Janesville Transit System.

That pleases Dave Mumma, head of the Janesville Transit System. "Public transportation nowadays is about a lot more than bus routes running in Janesville or Beloit and the Rock County Specialized Transit System throughout the county. The goal is to ensure citizens throughout the county have access to mobility by whatever means makes the most sense for their particular situation. "It's a need that's out there, and we've heard from people but haven't been in a position to address it before," Mumma said. Mumma agreed: "Taxi service in the community technically is available, but it's a struggle for people to get a cab ride in Janesville. We've had people come into town going to set up taxi service in Janesville and Beloit, but it only lasted for a year, and they were gone." Janesville city buses do not operate Saturday evening or on Sunday and Rock County Specialized Transit is stretched thin, he said. "So there are still unmet needs out there," Mumma said.
