Riders stranded as bus driver protest halts Detroit service; DDOT warns of 'extreme delays'

Recommended Posts

A protest by at least 100 Detroit Department of Transportation bus drivers today has crippled service for bus riders across the city of Detroit.

 

DDOT passengers have been left stranded throughout the city as drivers say they are afraid to board the buses after one was attacked on a bus recently.

 

"The bus drivers have expressed concern about this incident," Mayor Dave Bing's spokesman, Stephen Serkaian, said this morning. "We are meeting with the bus drivers' union. We are trying to resolve their concern. At the same time we’re encouraging them to get back on the buses and get the buses back on the street."

I remember reading an article a few months ago about how a woman attended a public hearing and complained about having to wait 3 hours for a bus. Now that's just messed up. :eek:

DDOT is a lost cause, and the transit police aren't doing their jobs either. This past summer a woman was waiting too hours at the bus stop and dies of heat exhaustion.

 

This is definitely an agency that Veolia needs to take over immediately.
