Busing consortium RFPs?

The Belleville Intelligencer posted this story Saturday regarding the fear of smaller, independent school bus companies fearing the provincially mandated transportation consortia would rob them of the business they've traditionally had with school boards.
Something to keep an eye on-- while most student transportation in this province, dare I say this country, is handled by a few companies (ie: Laidlaw, First Student, etc.) and their subsidiary companies, there are still many smaller independent firms out there.
