Mayor Miro Weinberger Statement in Response to Agreement to End Bus Strike

“It is a great relief for the community that our buses will be rolling again tomorrow morning.  The end of the strike is welcome news for our schoolchildren, families, patients, and neighboring community members, who have suffered these past three weeks.  These long days without our buses running served as a reminder of the important role bus service plays in this community.  I look forward to helping make our bus service even stronger by working to ensure that the CCTA workplace culture improves and to continue the remarkable growth of CCTA bus service over the last decade.  I thank Senator Sanders and the Burlington City Council, with special thanks to Councilors Karen Paul and Dave Hartnett, for their contributions toward resolving this situation and Governor Shumlin for the leadership he displayed yesterday in bringing the parties together.”
