I just signed the following petition addressed to: The Big Blue Bus Company.
Treat disabled and physically challenged riders fairly & with respect!
It is said that Santa Monica takes pride in the placements of services they offer to the disabled...but that is definitely not true for The Big Blue Bus. If they take pride in anything it is most definitely not in their services for the disabled and physically challenged. Most drivers are careless to the needs of disabled and physically challenged riders at best. At worse, they are condescending and disrespectful.
Is it really too much to ask that Big Blue Bus drivers lowers the landing pad for all disabled and physically challenged riders and request that non-disabled passengers provide a seat to disabled and physically challenged riders? How can Santa Monica lay claim to this disabled pride when their second largest mode of transportation is serviced so poorly?
