Story idea--any takers?
I worked on stories last year about the problematic negotiations between shuttle drivers and their employer, ATC/Vancom of Texas. Capital Metro contracted that company to run the UT shuttles.
But in a bidding session around the beginning of summer, ATC/Vancom lost a bid for the shuttles. Now a different company is in charge--First Transit.
I'd really like to see a story about how First Transit is doing during their first year of running the UT shuttles. I'm not too happy with them, and I bet there are other students like me.
I don't have time to write this story, but I'd really like someone to investigate! Any takers?
I wish someone would write about it in the Texan! Then maybe they'd do something to improve the service...
