Transport Workers Caught Behaving Badly - Videos


In London, a train subway worker has had to resign after being videoed verbally abusing an elderly passenger.

And a Toronto bus driver has been suspended after a bus passenger videoed him regularly taking a very boring but telling seven-minute coffee and doughnut break mid-route, leaving his passengers on the bus.

A craze of filming such incidents and putting them on youtube is starting to rattle authorities.

The Montreal bus drivers union is threatening to sue anyone who videos his union members at work. A spokesman told the local media: “It’s personal, you can’t just film individuals and post it like that.” If I was a driver and that happened to me, I would sue.”

Such official angst is unlikely to discourage commuters.

In Montreal, another video doing the rounds is of a transit worker trashing recyclables on a train platform.

    Oh, that’s easy to fix. Just do what the UK police is doing. Make all taking of photos and video on public transport illegal (or claim they are illegal) - for safety and privacy reasons only, of course! Oh, and because terrorists will win otherwise.

    Just being funny right now - but wait until some PT body proposes just that!

  2. Ingolfson says:

    Woops, didn’t read the article. They are already doing it!

  3. Matt L says:

    These workers seem to forget that they are working to provide a service. If they piss enough people off then people will stop using the service. When that happens they will be out of a job.
