There should be a new sign on the side of our Timmins Transit buses ... "Enter at your own risk!"
I'm talking about getting on the bus and having to run the obstacle course created by baby strollers which are always parked right at the front of the bus.
Strollers these days are made so big they could probably house a small country.
Add to that, toy bags, food bags, parcels and the like, they take up the whole aisle. Why, whenever possible, can't these strollers go to the back of the bus?
I recently boarded the No. 37 bus at the Transit Terminal.
By the time I got on, there were three strollers and one child-sized two-wheel bike, all parked at the front.
The back half was empty and being one of the bigger buses could have easily accommodated the strollers, but not one of them was willing to move, taking up seats that by the way, are reserved for the elderly and handicapped, (out of courtesy) as clearly stated on the signs posted.
There was such a jam up of people at the front, I asked the driver why couldn't the strollers be moved to the back of the bus as there was plenty of room.
She told me that she didn't have the authority to do that.
