    Well, Disney can't technically fire the shuttle drivers... BECAUSE THEY DON'T WORK FOR DISNEY.

    They work for Super Shuttle... so I'd bet that the contract is up and Disney decided to not renew.

    It's probably for the best, use your own employees (probably from Parking lot) and get updated shuttles to boot. I haven't had to use the shuttle for a few years and I was surprised how worn out and lumpy the seats were now.

    Yup, that's what I heard, the contract wasn't renewed. Good riddance. The shuttles are so beat up that I actually get motion sick from them, and they never run enough during peak times. I heard some horror stories this morning about the ridiculous shuttle lines; it seems I picked a good day to take the bus.

    There are a couple of the drivers I'll miss, though. WATCH YOUR STEEEEEEEP! HAVE A GOOD NIGHT!

    I didn't know if it was a good or bad thing. My friend is the one who told me since she is the one who works there. I hope that they get better buses for you all!

    Re: Bus Drivers being laid off

    I'm new to the shuttle and have only taken it twice... I knew that I was just lucky with the shuttle arriving 3 minutes after I got to the station both times. Are the shuttles themselves owned by the company? I'm doubting they'd get new ones just for a driver switch.

    i'd say that i hope they keep a shuttle running to ball lot past 7, but i just learned i can park in the tda structure anyways after 5 whee

    The one that sounds like he should be a DJ for a jazz station? He's also excellent.

    Re: Bus Drivers being laid off

    yeah, theres a lot of great shuttle drivers. if they do go, i would miss them. I dont know his name but he one of the funniest drivers ever.

    What stop sign (in K lot) i see no stop sign? *blows the sign after looking to see if there is cars* This was at like 2AM. no one was around.

    so whats next then? Wonder who is gonna replace it. Reminds me of Stardiners.

    When is Stardiners closing?
