The Central Ohio Transit Authority and the union representing  drivers and mechanics have each ratified a 3-year-contract agreement. 

The deal includes annual 3 percent raises and on-demand service, in which drivers will use smaller vehicles in neighborhoods or on routes to employment centers that connect to fixed routes. The contract includes no language on the future of driverless buses, an issue that has prompted Transport Workers Union Local 208 to rally against them. The deal runs through the end of 2020.
