A tractor-trailer attempting to back up into the parking lot of a motorcycle dealership caused some headaches on West Chester Pike bus routes earlier today.

The truck was attempting to back into the Honda parking lot on West Chester Pike near Montrose at around 1:40pm. A 104 bus from West Chester (3371/4254 block) was one of several vehicles that was stuck behind it. After about 15-20 minutes of waiting (and inaction by the Upper Darby Township police, which allowed a 124 deadheading back to the depot to back up, then waited about 15 minutes before allowing the 104 to back up), the 4254 block - and every West Chester Pike bus after it - reached the terminal via Township Line and Lynn Blvd. As a result, the 2:05pm to West Chester left 20 minutes late. Several other buses (including a 112 and a 123) were also late as a result.
