Settlement Resolves OAG Lawsuit Against Greyhound for Excessive Bus Idling at Union Station
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Attorney General Karl A. Racine announced today that Greyhound Lines, Inc. will be required to make company-wide policy changes to reduce air pollution and will prohibit excessive bus idling nationwide as part of a settlement with the Office of the Attorney General (OAG). The company will also pay a $125,000 penalty to the District for allowing buses to idle at Union Station for longer than the District’s legal limit. This settlement resolves a lawsuit over Greyhound’s violations of the District’s air pollution control law and failure to comply with multiple enforcement notices. Greyhound will also provide anti-idling to all of its drivers across the country, routine anti-idling reminders to all drivers via text messages and stickers in buses, provide specific training on the District’s air pollution regulations to drivers with routes to or from DC, and hire a supervisor to monitor anti-idling compliance at Union Station.
