Short Line Bus strike
Confusion abounded this morning, the first rush hour affected by the Coach USA / Short Line bus strike.
Well, for starters, the bus company didn’t advertise to its customers that there might be a strike.
Then, many folks who read our article yesterday about the strike the other day were confused by it, and I can understand some of the confusion: Several bus lines that ferry commuters between Rockland and New York City are owned by Coach USA. Short Line is only one of them. Red and Tan weren’t affected by the strike, for example.
But, as noted in the article, drivers and others with other Coach USA lines weren’t going to cross the metaphorical picket line and take over driving the Short Line routes.
They did, however, continue to honor their own contracts and drive their own routes.
Check out our article in tomorrow’s paper for continued updates on the strike.
