“Dear PoPville,

Yesterday afternoon (22 Oct) on the 36 bus our driver announced that starting Monday (27 Oct) all buses would be delayed. He said there were several reasons- all buses could not go above 25 MPH, they could not start moving if anyone was still standing near the driver (like adding money to their Smartrip) and they would have to limit stops to pick up passengers if there were too many people standing. The driver mentioned something about a new contract trying to force the old employees out because they make too much. He also mentioned something about a new 3 strike policy that would automatically turn a violation into two day suspension. Have you heard anything about this? These don’t seem like the worst ideas considering the stories I’ve read on PoPville.”
