Riders who depend on on the bus to get around Chittenden County are still stuck. CCTA is now considering hiring temporary bus drivers until the strike by drivers is over. The two sides are set to meet again Wednesday night to try to hammer out a deal.
The strike is now in its third week.
Gov. Peter Shumlin said Tuesday he wants both sides to make concessions to get the buses moving.
"We're getting pretty frustrated. We've got 10,000 Vermonters who don't get where they need to go and they tend to be our most vulnerable Vermonters," said Shumlin, D-Vermont. "It's time for both sides to sit down and resolve their differences, so we get the buses running in Chittenden County."
Governor Shumlin and Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger say they are pleased with the federal mediation session that's scheduled for 5 p.m. Wednesday.
