Rhode Island city official offers help for stranded bus

Posted on February 14, 2013

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Twelve buses used to transport students for the school district here were delayed on Wednesday due to snowy and icy conditions on the roads, ABC 6 reports.

Christina O'Reilly, spokeswoman for Providence Public Schools, told the news outlet that since the city operates 168 buses, only 12 getting stuck was “overall, pretty good.”

"Our bus company did a really phenomenal job," O'Reilly said, noting that the last bus to return to the bus yard was delayed at most a half hour.

Interestingly, Providence Mayor Angel Taveras stopped to offer assistance when he noticed a bus that was stuck on his way to an event, according to ABC 6.
