Pr. George's bus strike continues

The contractor who operates TheBus in Prince George's County is scheduled to return to the negotiating table Wednesday with the union that represents bus drivers and maintenance workers, said a spokeswoman for the company.

Veolia Transportation is operating all 26 routes on a full or limited scheduled, with 51 of 60 buses in service, spokeswoman Valerie Michael said.

Members of Teamsters Local 689 are negotiating for better health coverage and changes in the company's disciplinary policy. Veolia is using drivers from other jurisdictions to operate the public bus system during the strike. The company employs 136 full-time and 12 part-time workers in Prince George's.

Riders can go to the county's Web site to find out the latest information on routes.

Fares on TheBus are suspended while the strike continues.
