CORPORATE DOLLARS PICK UP D'BACK SHUTTLE EXPENSES

          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).
