Heated clash breaks out on TTC streetcar between passengers and driver

Instead of dealing with the issue with the TTC driver, we are punishing the customer.
TTC drivers get away with a lot of things and when people complain they get booted off the street car or
drivers get rude and nasty escalating the situations.  If they were simply polite like Go Transit Staff then
a lot of these heated situations can be resolved before they escalate.

Really, Go Transit should consult TTC on customer service and customer relations or more of this will happen.

I look forward to comments on this situation or other incidents you had with ttc.

Want to break the law and get away with it? Work for the TTC.

Safety First, this is how Go Transit thinks now, it was not always that way
but they worked on it.  One thing you didn't hear from Go Transit was that
a bus or train driver broke a law and that they would deal with it internally.

That is exactly what is happening on the TTC.  The latest is a texting bus
driver.  Kinear said if any laws were broken there are internal processes to
deal with the issues and that they will stand behind their employees.

I remember similar comments with the sleeping attendant at the station. Now
its a safety concern especially in light of the recent increase in pedestrian
fatalities related to bus accidents.

I find it shocking that the average driver in Ontario faces a $500 fine
for texting because its dangerous but bus drivers responsible for the safety of
hundreds of people during the course of a day gets let off with an internal
investigation that we never hear about

A citizen of Ontario regardless of whether they are Union or not should be the
same under the law.  You would think the TTC were a military base by the
seperate tribunal but a quick look and you realize the military is actually
organized, and concerned about your safety.

Safety first, and all equal under the law.  Two things we need Mayor Ford to
look at.

Support Presto On The TTC.

It seems Go Transit and many other transit systems are smart and doing presto to make riding easier across
systems.  The TTC however is not going to be adding Presto to any more stations beyond the pilot and will
likely stick you with a credit card payment system in its place.  Show the TTC you prefer Presto over Credit Card at the turnstyle and Support Presto On The TTC

Please pass this on to all your friends as the more of us join the more TTC will take notice and change their decision.  It could mean less fare increases since they would not be wasting millions researching what Presto has already done.
