DDOT Deals With Overheated Buses

DETROIT (WWJ) – Detroit Department of Transportation administrators are asking for patience as they deal with overheated buses.

WWJ Newsradio 950 spoke with DDOT Director Levette Williams who said, with the engines in the back of the bus and debris clogging air flow, many engines overheat when temperatures climb into the 90s.

Service trucks are driving around to help make the proper repairs to get the buses back on the road.

Some riders said they had to wait more than an hour longer for a bus in record temperatures on Tuesday.

A heat advisory remains in effect in Metro Detroit until midnight Wednesday.
