CORPORATE DOLLARS PICK UP D'BACK SHUTTLE EXPENSES
Published March 18, 1998
Phoenix "likely will provide shuttle buses" for the Diamondbacks, but "won't be footing the bill," according to Chris Fiscus of the ARIZONA REPUBLIC. Under a compromise reached Tuesday, corporate dollars would fund the cost -- about $20,000 per month -- to operate buses on game days for two or three months. Fiscus writes that the deal "would replace a controversial plan that called for a city-funded shuttle" for the team. The City Council will vote on the bus plan today. Fiscus adds that the city "balked" at a plan submitted Tuesday by Southwest Charter Lines to provide shuttle transportation, "because of its cost and because the city could not provide the buses without going out for bid." Southwest today will submit an updated bid without asking for use of the city buses (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 3/18).
