ATU 1091 Plans a Strike

Today Capital Metro learned that ATU 1091, the transit union that represents most of the bus drivers and mechanics that operate and service Capital Metro's fleet, has planned a transit strike on Wednesday, November 5.

In the event of a strike, Capital Metro is prepared to offer a core network of routes: 1L/1M, 3, 7, 10, 17, 20, 37, 101, 300, 331.

In addition, all of the UT Shuttle routes will also be in service. Modified schedules and maps, and the most current information will be available on the Capital Metro Web site and through the local news.
