Metro Transit publishes stroller rules!


Not so much a bitch but a followup to an issue that seems to come up every month or so. I like the rule about operator discretion to deal with SUV-sized models blocking the aisle. Taken from the current GoTimes issue:

Baby Stroller Guidelines
For the safety and well-being of babies & young children, other passengers and Metro Transit operators, we ask that the following guidelines be respected when travelling with baby strollers:
• Strollers should be small, light-weight and foldable. Recommended size should not be larger than 42” x 22.5”.
• Upon boarding the bus, children should be removed from the stroller and held by the parent or guardian. Those wishing to leave children in the stroller should remain near the front of the bus, utilizing the courtesy seats when available.
• The brake must be engaged at all times when the bus is in movement.
• The stroller should not obstruct the aisle or impede the flow of passengers.
• Mobility-impaired passengers have priority of the front of the bus.
• At the operators’ discretion, larger strollers that impede the flow of passengers when boarding or exiting, or deemed unsafe for transport may be refused entry.
Metro Transit serves over 90,000 passengers daily throughout our community. We ask those travelling with strollers to be mindful of other passengers.
