You know who else would have something to say about it? The unions. As it stands now, I would be looked at as a competitor who would try to eat the whole system.
I didn't say union MEMBERS...just the union as an organization. Mayor Mike can't deal with sensitive issues like that until after November. Wait, there's an MTA contract too, make that January.
Besides, the only companies that get city routes and franchises are companies that have proved their worth in the private sector. If I prove my worth in the private sector, they may be more receptive to my offers in the public sector. Look no further than Atlantic Express to see this.
