Bus drivers’ attitudes have to improve

April 18, 2013

Dear Sir,

I would like to bring up a topic that I believe most people can relate to: Attitudes of the Bermuda bus drivers. Personally I have my own transportation however, before, I used to use the bus on a regular basis when private transportation was not available.

For example, a friend of mine was coming over to my house and he rang the bell to get off, however the bus driver did not hear him and kept on driving past the bus stop. My friend brought up the fact that he had rung the bell to the driver that it was his stop. The bus driver started to yell at him practically cussing him off, at which the friend got off the bus and had to walk to his destination… not a short trip.

For this, I personally think that if the government is attempting to encourage the public to use the public transport system then they need to take a more disciplinary approach to some of these bus drivers. I feel that certain situations are appropriate for such actions, but I do not agree with them acting out of spite towards the public. The community pays their salaries and keeps transport going so I do not feel that these bus drivers hold the right to be disrespecting the general public in any way.

Bermuda used to be one of the most sought after, optimistic communities in the world at one point with worldclass facilities.

Where did it all go? Why did we have to change from being amiable to a detached community?

If everyone wants change so much then we need to start with the people of our country not the government.
