£)uring the fall semester, the Univeristy of Houston
was invaded by the yellow school bus. UH was forced
to use the yellow school buses after four of the regular
shuttle buses were seized because a Houston charter
bus company failed to pay off a city tax debt.
National Transit Inc. had rented the bus to UH for
the past three years, but was stripped to its entire
operating fleet. National Transit contended that it was
tax-exempt, because when it contracted with Metro
bus sevices the year before, it was providing a city
service and therefore, did not have to pay taxes.
"The buses are old, not maintained well and smoke
quite a bit. Their contract states they are to provide air
conditioning, but that is something we have not been
pleased with," Daniel Booth said.
Interim President George Magner said the temporary buses were a hassle.
Michael Douglas, a senior civil engineering major,
said his experiences with the temporary buses have
"Those suck. Their hot, small and uncomfortable,"
