T-S-A Denies Great Lakes Bus Plan

Cheyenne, WY – Citing security concerns, Great Lakes Airlines has been denied the right to start bus service between airport terminals in Laramie and Cheyenne to Denver. The Transportation Security Administration has decided not to approve what would have been a first-of-its-kind service. The T-S-A says there were too many questions about whether the bus would be secure as it traveled to Denver. Great Lakes Vice President for Marketing and Planning Dave Thomas says the decision doesn't make sense to him. He says the airline had a great plan in place to make the bus secure. Thomas believes the T-S-A is being shortsighted with this decision.
