    U.S. border officials are quietly bussing a vast flood of wage-cutting, rent-spiking migrants into Americans’ towns and cities, despite the court-ordered preservation of the Title 42 barrier. “It’s like 8,000 to 9,000 a day now,” and there are more on the way, migration monitor Todd Bensman told Breitbart News.

    At least 14 people were killed and more than a dozen others injured when a bus carrying domestic tourists crashed into an advertising sign in Indonesia's East Java province early on Monday, police said. The bus -- which was carrying 31 passengers, the driver and a crew member -- hit the pole and then rolled over on a toll road connecting the town of Mojokerto to the country's second city, Surabaya. The victims were from Benowo, a village near Surabaya, and were returning home after a long weekend at popular holiday destination Dieng Plateau, about 400 kilometers away in Central...

    The Emerald City is going up in smoke, again. Two years after Seattle officials let the city burn during BLM protests, bus drivers say they’re facing a frightful new danger: second-hand fentanyl fumes spread by addicts brazenly smoking the deadly synthetic drug on public transportation.

    Paris (AFP) – Dozens of electric buses will be taken off the streets of Paris temporarily "as a precaution" after two of the vehicles caught fire, public transport operator RATP said Friday. Following a second blaze on Friday morning, in which no one was hurt, "RATP has taken the decision to suspend use of 149 electric buses" of manufacturer Bollore's Bluebus 5SE model, the state-owned company said. The number 71 bus that caught fire in southeast Paris early Friday released thick clouds of black smoke and a strong smell of burning plastic, according to an AFP journalist on the scene....

    MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough on Friday reacted to alleged audio of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) telling Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) that he would recommend then-President Donald Trump resign over the January 6 Capitol riot. Scarborough said McCarthy, who has denied saying he would recommend Trump resign, just never learned that “you can’t bow and scrape to Donald Trump enough” because “he will end up throwing you under the bus at the end no matter what.”

The bus was en route to the ancient Temple of Esna on the West Bank of the Nile River when it crashed on the highway, but the reason for the collision is unknown. The crash comes mere days after another tourist bus crashed near the Red Sea,...

    Former President Donald Trump’s niece Mary Trump said Thursday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that her cousin Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner will turn on Donald Trump if it is what is best for them. Anchor Nicolle Wallace said, “There is a question that I have had on my mind, and you’re the only person that can answer it. How does the bizarre sycophantic bubble split along Jared and Ivanka sitting for hours-long interviews with the 1/6 committee while Peter Navarro races down to Mar-a-Lago to shove the hot dogs wrapped in a bun into his mouth and high five...

    HONG KONG—Lu Jiaying hasn’t tested positive for Covid, and hasn’t experienced any symptoms. But at 7 p.m. on Sunday, the 34-year-old technology worker and resident of central Shanghai, was ordered to board a bus for a mass quarantine center. Nearly 16 hours later, Ms. Lu, still aboard the bus in a head-to-toe protective suit, hadn’t eaten a bite, sipped any water or gone to the bathroom, a casualty of the chaos that has seized China’s biggest and most prosperous city amid a surge in Covid infections.
  • D.C. Council Ponders Bill to Give Residents $100 Monthly to Ride Metro

    Washington Informer ^ | 2/24/22 | James Wright Jr.
    D.C. Councilmembers are considering a bill that would allocate $100 a month for residents to ride the Metro. The bill, Metro for DC Amendment Act of 2022, is authored by Councilmember Charles Allen (D-Ward 6). The $100 would come from surplus funds at the end of the city’s fiscal year. Additionally, $10 million would be dedicated to improving the District’s bus service. Supporters of the bill argue by paying for trips taken, the $100 per resident proposal could get cars off the streets and subsidize Metro’s service costs. Proponents of Allen’s bill also say it will help the environment and...

    DENVER — Trash, drug use and violence out in the open at Union Station’s RTD train and bus stops have employees demanding something be done about it. The union representing 2,000 workers for RTD and First Transit, RTD’s largest fixed-route contractor, alerted the community of the conditions in a Wednesday press release, calling Union Station a “lawless hellhole.” “It’s not safe to come to work when you have to inhale smoke from drug pipes,” the union said. They join riders and even some who are homeless in calling for action. ‘They have no respect’.. Union Station is a staple of...

    A Pennsylvania school bus aide is charged with stabbing a nurse at the school and holding a 14-year-old student hostage at knifepoint in a bizarre burst of violence. Police said the incident unfolded shortly after 9 a.m. Wednesday during morning drop-off at the Watson Institute, a school for special-needs students in Allegheny County.

    As thousands of Chicago Public Schools families scrambled to find transportation to the first day of school Monday because of a mass bus driver resignation that officials attributed to anger over a vaccine mandate, Mayor Lori Lightfoot said her administration is in talks with rideshare companies to take children to their schools. The move would be highly unusual and could cause yet another set of dilemmas to sort through as parents figure out how to get their kids to classes. About 2,100 students, including 990 in special education, were given no more than two days’ notice that their bus route...

    More than two dozen electric Proterra buses first unveiled by the city of Philadelphia in 2016 are already out of operation, according to a WHYY investigation. The entire fleet of Proterra buses was removed from the roads by SEPTA, the city's transit authority, in February 2020 due to both structural and logistical problems—the weight of the powerful battery was cracking the vehicles' chassis, and the battery life was insufficient for the city's bus routes. The city raised the issues with Proterra, which failed to adequately address the city's concerns. The city paid $24 million for the 25 new Proterra buses,...

    Of course, you all know the story of how kids come into this world, so we won’t get into that right now. We will, however, get into a school bus – metaphorically – and travel through history to have a quick look at how school buses came to be. School buses are used to transport kids from various locations to the schools they attend. The need for them arose from the fact that there were no means of transport linking certain areas to certain schools, or from the fact that public transport as we know it is not all that...

    The wheels on the nation's buses aren't going round and round very much these days. Demand for bus travel has fallen by more than 80 percent during the pandemic as public health authorities urge people to avoid travel where possible. That is raising concerns about the potential long-term damage to an essential transport method for millions of lower-income Americans even as air travel has shown signs of picking up since the Thanksgiving holiday period. And those who have to take the bus, for whatever reason, are finding fewer options, and often higher prices as a result.

Cops witnessed the party bus from downtown Cincinnati stop in front of the Hilltop Shopping Center in Mount Healthy around 9:50 p.m., and several kids, who weren’t wearing masks, getting off without social distancing, the Mount Healthy Police Department said.
