Ticket to ride, part II

Saskatoon Transit added bike racks to buses to accommodate cyclists who might want to bike one way and then bus it home. Saturday's SP (May 8/10) ran an article on problems with baby strollers on buses. Although the report said more about bad manners then anything else, it seems this problem has a quick fix. Strollers, like bikes, are wheeled vehicles.

I was particularly taken with the bus driver's response. He wasn't getting involved. I thought all public venues had postings that verbal abuse will not be tolerated. Maybe that's pertains just to verbal abuse of civic employees and not users of public amenities. I wonder if that driver would have become involved if the altercation had been physical rather than verbal. See no evil, hear no evil . . . just keep on truckin'.

If public transportation is to become viable and self-sustaining, then it must be efficient, economical and convenient. To date it is losing on all counts.

Where are my car keys?
