The CARTA board on Thursday passed a revised ordinance on persons addressing the board, including a provision that no person shall be allowed to appear before the board more than two times during any consecutive four-month period.
The City Council allows speakers twice a month, while the County Commission has no limit on appearances.
CARTA meets once a month. The city and county boards meet weekly.
CARTA was recently sued in Federal Court by the bus drivers union over a complaint that its officials were not allowed to speak directly to the board. Afterward, leaders of the union have made several presentations to the board.
There were no speakers from the public at the meeting on Thursday.
Lisa Maragnano, executive director, said CARTA will be offering a four-hour training to drivers related to safety and procedures during attacks. The union earlier complained of a lack of bus driver safety training.
Total CARTA ridership is up slightly for the first month of the fiscal year - from 282,490 to 283,810.
Ridership on the Incline Railway, which is a valuable money-maker for the transit agency, was up from 81,578 to 84,202.
The free Downtown Shuttle also carried more passengers than the same month the prior year. It was up from 73,780 to 79,467.
