We, the undersigned, oppose the following motion because it is discriminatory against people with disabilities and seniors.
THAT the policy establish a maximum size of 30 inches wide x 48 inches long and for wheelchairs, scooters and strollers.
It is discriminatory to expect seniors and people with disabilities to wait on the side of the road for the next bus, possibly in inclement weather, if the front seats are being used by parents with strollers.
They can buy a smaller stroller and, if necessary, move to the back of the bus. People who need to use an assistive device such as a wheelchair, walker, cane, crutches, a guide dog, or some other form of assistive device, do not. Further, by law, wheelchair must be secured in a moving vehicle.
