Re: Hamilton Bus Drivers sleeping?

The thing is if its raining or snowing and theres no shelters and someone has a kid and the bus driver is sleeping for 10 minutes that's not acceptable or the fact that they're sleeping infront of their "customers" would you sleep infront of your customers if u worked at a retail store no it's not professional.

I am sure they have schedules to follow.If they don't they can be fired. So complaints about raining, snowing, no shelters, waiting for the bus are irrelevant if the schedule is followed. Of course, the "no shelter" issue is something to be taken up with the bus company and not the driver.

Sorry but if i am on my breaks... i am on my breaks... that mean the customer can yell all they want i am taking my break.

The drivers does not have to work when he is supposed to be taking a break because it's raining outside or it's cold... dress accordingly

Meh, Montreal bus drivers do this all the time. It'll be -30 outside with windchill and they'll park their bus one length away from the bus stop and read their newspaper for fifteen minutes.

Which is irrelevant for riders who follow the bus schedule. Of course if you can't maybe mommy should dress you warmer.

If the driver is still meeting the schedule for the route they're driving, it absolutely is acceptable.

Montreal doesn't have bus schedules. It has bus suggestions. The bus may or may not show up, and if it does, it's +/- 10 minutes or so from the scheduled time.

If you don't get to a bus stop 10 minutes before the scheduled time, there is a risk that you will miss the bus and end up waiting 30-40 minutes for the subsequent one.

@bell.ca

the complaint is about the drivers sleeping off whether or not on their break and being 10 to 15 minutes LATE on their schedule.

Sounds like a perfectly acceptable Quebec solution to mass transit.
