OC Transpo… stay classy
But considering the number of witnesses and the fact that the police are involved, I suspect it may be.
I can see where a parent could easily get separated from a child on a crowded bus. Routes like the 94, 95, 97. etc are often packed like sardines thus making it difficult to get to an exit upon arrival at one’s stop. Unless you are carrying your child, he or she may not make it to the door in time. I’ve seen this “almost” happen quite a few times in my 15 years of riding the big red limos.
Add this to the tendency of many an operator to get away from the stop as quickly as possible with little regard for those customers who are struggling to get to a door, and a scenario like this is almost expected.
Operators need to understand that it is the service to the public that is paramount and not their eagerness to get to their next lay-up!
