Several years ago I had the exact same situation and got the same response from dispatch. So, in later instances lost bikes sat in my rack all shift.I did have a rider who left a bike on the rack call dispatch and they did coordinate with me and the rider met me at a stop and picked his bike back up.So is this the reasoning? Or are they afraid that operators will fill up line break rooms with lost bikes?
I agree with this as being one of the most asinine rules, although they have plenty of those.People are refused Trimet service because some idiot forgot to take his bike with him.Can you get any dumber than that?If the bike is in a break room or some other facility then dispatch can coordinate with a road supervisor and the owner to get the bike.Sheesh!
