Arlington PUC Urges
ICC Consideration of
Arnold 'Practices’
By th« Associated Press
The Arlington County Public Utili
ties Commission today asked the In- |
terstate Commerce Commcssion to
consider alleged "questionable prac
tices” by the Arnold Bus Line before
acting on a requested passenger fare
increase between Washington and
county points served by the line.t
"The record contains many pages
vnlntinn + + V\ a finonriol
|structure of respondent (company)
which indicates mismanagement,
{irregularities in accounting proce
dures and other questionable prac
tices, all of which require detailed
j consideration by the commission be
| fore an eouitable determination may
be made of the issues involved in
{this proceeding," the county com
mission said in a brief filed with
the ICC.
I The ICC has before it the line’s
{petition for a zone increase of 5
| cents in cash fares and 2li cents in
token fares. The increases were
j scheduled to become effective June 1,
but were suspended by commission
order pending an investigation.
The Arlington County Bus Riders’
Association contended yesterday the
line should be required to ‘'invest
; reasonable capital in the operation
I of the line before any fare increase
is considered.
Francis J. Ortman, association
president, said in a brief filed with
the ICC on behalf of the riders’
group:
‘‘The overwhelming and uncontra
dicted testimony of record proves
without reservation that the carrier
t-.no Kaon anH ic hpintr Inefficiently
: managed and is continuing to ren-[
!der inadequate service, contrary to
the best interests of the traveling
public.”
“The financial condition of the
respondent (which does business as
[the Washington, Virginia & Mary
land Coach Co.) results from its own
! uneconomical and inefficient use df
post revenues,” the brief asserted.
