DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - A petition signed by hundreds of people could spur Davenport’s outgoing mayor to veto an overhaul of the city’s bus service.

The Quad-City Times reports (https://bit.ly/1SAq7Hv ) Mayor Bill Gluba says the petition with 410 signatures indicates that “low-income riders are being ignored.”

Don Stevens Jr. has been critical of the changes approved by the council last week and gathered the signatures. He gave the petition to a city official at a Wednesday council meeting and criticized some of the plans.

Several Brown Mackie College students also objected to changes, such as one forcing riders to cross a busy road to reach a bus stop without sidewalks.

Gluba, who lost re-election and is in his last month as mayor, says he’ll decide this week whether to veto the plan.
