While city buses are operating on their normal schedules right now, both the city and a spokesman for the union representing hundreds of bus drivers say a strike could happen at any moment.

Those who rely on bus service are being advised to have a backup plan in case the strike does happen.

Talks are at a standstill in negotiations between Veolia Transportation, the company that operates a third of Valley Metro’s bus lines, and Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1433. Those negotiations have been going on for more than a year. The stumbling blocks continue to be wages and sick leave.
