I just saw on the news, that American Airlines will replace two regional routes from its Philadelphia hub to Atlantic City, and to Lehigh Valley (Allentown-Bethlehem with dedicated charter buses provided by "Landline"...

https://landline.com/

Apparently, they also have contracts with United Airlines, Southwest, and Sun Country...

What is interesting to me, is that the TSA thinks it's okay to run these buses with passenger's TSA screened at one airport, outside the "sterile area", directly to the other airports 'airside', so that passengers do not need to be rescreened...

The only ways I could think this will be okay is,
1- bus checked before passengers are boarded
2- driver is certified ( canít think of a better word ) for the transport of screened passengers
3- bus is stored under security

It would need to be almost like a prison bus, minus the bars and handcuffs.

I doubt that they would really allow passenger's leaving the "sterile area", to re-enter, without re-screening. Perhaps they might have a dedicated "fast-track" location to accomplish this?
