CARTA will be asking for financial help from areas cities and counties because it needs about $2 million more than it budgeted for construction of the new train and bus station on Gaynor Avenue, said CARTA board Chairman Mike Seekings.

The Intermodal Center had a construction budget of $10.5 million but the lowest bid was $2 million over that amount, he said.

The alternative to asking for local public funding is to borrow the $2 million from a bank. Seekings said he didn’t know if CARTA could qualify for a loan.
