Don't tell us, tell the GRT! I'm sure it would mean a lot to the driver if they received a commendation from their superiors.On the topic of evil drivers: I had the chance to speak with a GRT head office employee once, and it all became clear. Apparently, many bus drivers are former truck drivers or school bus drivers, who may not have strong people skills or experience dealing with the public. The reason for this is because they already hold the required licence to drive a bus, saving the GRT from having to pay for their driver's training.
@1 City busses actually require a different license that school busses or transport trucks.Source: My step dad has always worked in driving/mechanic jobs for a living. He has a school bus license, motorcycle license, normal vehicle license, and a transport truck license.
Pretty much every bus driver I've seen on GRT recently have been awesome. Not evil, at least. I've been impressed.You really don't appreciate them until you go to Toronto where TTC employees are mostly lifeless.
"You must load and unload the bike without assistance."- grt.caNot sure if the drivers actually receive instructions to not help.But yeah, I do encounter very friendly drivers since last term.
