I can't get my head around why a bus driver would refuse to admit that person and not ask the person with the stroller to move to the back - it's not that difficult and as I said many posts back, the bus driver has to take some responsibility here as well.
The policy needs to be changed in order to allow transit drivers the freedom to tell people to fold up their strollers. Until it's changed, the driver can't do a thing except to leave the person at the bus stop because there is no room. Doing anything else is either in violation of the person's "human rights" or Transit's policy.
|If some punks on the TTC were bothering other passengers the driver would certainly do something about that so|
Transit here is really stupid with their policies. I remember one time my brother told me that he stopped the bus in between stops because there was a drunk person passed out in the street. The area of town is notorious for stuff like that. He got out of the bus and dragged the woman off the road and propped her against the wall of the bar that she probably came out of. There happened to be a transit supervisor in the area who saw this. My brother got raked over the coals for having stopped his bus to help the woman. According to the supervisor, he should have gone around her and radioed in to have transit take care of it.
So he was supposed to drive around her, radio it in, and leave her in the street where she could have been hit by a car who didn't see her in time to drive around her.
So I'm not at all surprised, given some of the stories my brother has told me, that transit has a policy which allows disabled people to be left on the curb to await the next bus.
