ATLANTA (WAOK/AJC)-There may be some dark days ahead for MARTA.  General Manager Beverly Scott warned Monday that the transit agency needed to start preparing for deep service cuts in part because the state legislature failed to lift regulations on how much it can spend on operations.

According to a report in the AJC, that failure coupled with projections that sales tax revenues — MARTA’s main funding source —  will come up  $130 million short in the next five years of what had been previously projected means the agency will have to make cuts to ensure it has the $40 million in operating reserves required by law.
