Baby/child policy change

This petition had 70 supporters

Metrolinx GO buses are asking mothers of young babies to hold their children on their laps for the duration of the bus ride which can be anywhere from 1-4+ hrs. They do not offer proper seating or safety belts on buses which puts babies and children at risk. They think that holding your baby is safer then having your child buckled into their stroller. I am looking to have this policy changed, babies who are unable to walk should be allowed to remain in their strollers depending on the space available on the bus and type of bus (a double decker) or they should be providing the proper seating(regular GO bus). I almost dropped my 8 month old daughter more then once on a recent bus trip, is it going to take a child being seriously hurt or death of a child for this policy to finally change?
