Congratulations, and thank you! In almost fourteen years of riding the bus, I can't think of a single time one has broken down.

Grandpa64, I am 62 years old and I remember riding a bus to downtown Mpls when I was 8 years old. My sister and I took sewing lessons at Singer sewing in Downtown Mpls and rode the bus. Mom didn't have a car when dad was at work. The bus company wasn't called MTC but there most certainly was a bus company. You need to get your facts straight. Congratulations to Mr Sharp.

Sy is a great guy, good leader. One who remembers how it was to be a worker. Treats everyone fair and with respect. Does not look down on employees like the management today. You will not hear anyone say anything but good about this man.
