Detroit's bus drivers has reportedly asked local lawmakers to put pressure on the transit agency to help stop the spread of bedbugs on buses.
The Detroit News reports that roughly 50 Detroit Department of Transportation (DDOT) drivers have said they've seen bedbugs on buses, and some have been bitten within the past year, according to Henry Gaffney, president of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 26.

America- the latest third world sewer!
Remember that scene from The Shawshank Redemption flick where the guards delouse Andy Defrane? Well, that’s what they need to due to all of the bus patrons before they get on the Detroit Buses.
Not a big surprise after my recent visit there while crewing for the Indy Car / Grand Am races the first week of June. Everything looked OK on Jefferson Ave between the Marriot (GM) and Belle Island, but get one street off and Yikes!
The White House DNC CZAR-for-Fomites-and-Parasites
is doing his job well.
Rumor is that AG Holder and the DOJ eagerly
want to arm them with FleshEatingDisease-AutomaticWeapons.
Even the bed bugs are trying to get out of Detroit.
Detroit busses, Chicago busses, Philly busses, St Louis busses.......
Subways, taxis, airplanes. Anyplace where filthy subhumans might park their arse.
A friend of mine who lives in town found bedbugs in his house and he’s a regular old clean freak. He took all his washables to a laundromat in another town.
Yeas ago I worked with a guy who moved, sold, or scrapped old mobile homes. The ones he sold went to an empty field he owned for fumigation before going to his sales lot next to his house.
I wasn’t aware that parasites could exist on other parasites...
Leave the buses locked up for a day in this heat. End of problem.
Diatomaceous earth (Shell flour). You don’t want to inhale it due to the silicosis danger but its completely non toxic and appears to work well.
Maybe federal money should go for cattle shutes which would have each mass transit passenger dip before entering at each bus stop. That would resolve the bedbug problem and the not-showering problem often seen on mass transit.

My mass transit motto.
Mass Transit - Because nobody wants to die alone.
Yeah, they could put drains on the floors of the buses.
IIRC, the bedbugs are from south of the Border.
Yup. People ride a city bus to a greyhound terminal and on to the next town. Its how they’ve spread all across the country.
