Monroe mayor touts bus enhancements

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo is still hoping to sway the city council to renew First Transit's contract to manage the city's bus system.

Mayo and Public Works Director Tom Janway pointed to a long list of improvements throughout the years they say demonstrates how valuable First Transit has been to helping Monroe provide what Janway called one of the best bus systems in the country.

The council voted against renewing First Transit's contract during a meeting in December because of poor working conditions for employees, late or broken down buses, and poor facilities.

However, Mayo said the grumblings are from just a handful of disgruntled employees, and he said a tour of the facilities would rebut their claims.
