I-Team: Ghost Riders Investigation Harrisburg- Noon Update

Several Luzerne County Transportation Authority bus drivers say they were pressured to make it seem like more people took the bus than in reality. Now 2 top officials with the LCTA are under fire. Lead I Team Investigator Andy Mehalshick, who has been following this case of "Ghost Riders" for months, is in Dauphin County for Tuesday's proceedings
Dauphin County- Drama today in Dauphin County District Court. One LCTA bus driver testified that it was common knowledge among drivers to "hit the button" to pad senior ridership numbers. Louis Roman  said LCTA Executive Director Stanley Strelish and Robb Henderson, Director of Operations, told drivers they could lose their jobs if Senior ridership does not increases. Those numbers are tied to the amount of State funding received by LCTA. The hearing is expected to last all day. Strelish and Henderson face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.  The I-Team's Andy Mehalshick will have more on today's proceedings on later editions of Eyewitness News.
