C-TRAN CONDUCTING WAR AGAINST ITS DRIVERS
In one case somebody in a mobility device rolled the device onto the lift, (battery was dead) the driver asked if he was ready, the person said yes, and the driver proceeded to bring up the lift. The guy fell backwards off the lift. They blamed it on the driver and terminated him.
In the other case a chair with attendant and woman on a walker boarded the bus. The attendant always puts the straps on the chair. The driver proceeds to leave the stop and a vehicle turns from the left lane into a right turn. Driver puts on the brakes and the woman with the walker "falls" (actually leans) into the wheelchair and ends up with a bruise. C-Tran fired the driver for not actually checking to see if the straps on the wheelchair were properly hooked. (Bizzare)
They would not pull the DVR for some reason.
