1994:  After Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority bus operators go on strike, CEO Franklin White orders hundreds of office workers into service on thirty bus lines weekdays from 6am to 6pm for the duration of the work stoppage.

The contingency plan for the work stoppage includes replacement operators who had previous received emergency bus operator training and obtained Class B licenses.

In this unprecedented move, additional contracted operators were brought in and service continued to expand all through labor negotiations.
