Averting the 2023 Back-to-School NYC Bus Strike with Corey Muirhead

Join Host Zack Fink as he speaks with Corey Muirhead, Executive Vice President of Logan Business Company, and DHC’s own Charles Capetanakis about a time when the “wheels on the bus” almost stopped going round and round.

Just before the start of the 2023 New York City school year, bus operators came perilously close to going on strike. A last-minute deal was reached to keep the drivers on the job, ensuring that students would be able to get back and forth to school.

Logan Bus Company is the city’s largest school operator with 4,000 drivers and roughly 2,000 routes, and this episode lays out the hard work and the subtle negotiating nuances that took place behind the scenes to avoid a disastrous school bus strike. Listen in now to this fascinating discussion.
