I would like a policy clarification please.
It had been the policy of this agency to allow movement of the bus as soon as passengers had “moved safely behind the yellow line”. (With exceptions)
I’m sure you are aware that many people take quite a long time to actually take their seats and some people choose to go way to the back of the bus in a nonchalant style that can actually take quite a long time.
Is the policy now that the bus cannot be moved until passengers “are safely seated”?
If there is a fall before a passenger is seated is that an automatic PA?
If yes to the above what about people that refuse to sit or overloaded buses?
This needs to be clearly defined to us as operators.
