NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. — Academy Bus Co., which served the University for the last 10 years, filed a lawsuit against Rutgers University and First Transit Bus Service for negotiating a contract without first informing the company, The Daily Targum reports. The coach carrier alleges that Rutgers collaborated through e-mail with First Transit to create an unequal playing field that would favor the UK-based transportation provider.
