Parents, Officials Take After-School Bus Fight to Norwalk

By James Lomuscio

Though only a handful of Westport parents and officials showed up at a public hearing in Norwalk today, their message to the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) in Washington was a strong one: do not discontinue the Westport Transit District’s (WTD) after-school bus service for children. Image

“The rug has been pulled out from everybody’s feet right as school starts,” Dewey Loselle, Westport’s operations director, told Nancy Carroll, chief operating officer for the Norwalk Transit District (NTD), which runs the WTD.

“We’re really just asking for an extension of time until January 1,” he added. “We would like to look at whatever measures we can to make it compliant.”

The WTD learned from the state Department of Transportation (DOT) Aug. 1 that the after-school bus service it has run for more than 30 years, shuttling children to religious education and myriad activities, was in violation of federal law for a municipal bus service.
