Caught two buses yesterday with a 7 month old baby and a pram. Old style bus = lugging the pram up and down the stairs. Would have taken him out of the pram but a) he was asleep and b) it is safer for him to be secured in the pram on a lurching bus.
Got no help, or even a hello, from the bus drivers but lots of help from fellow passengers. So Thank You all for being so helpful and helping this frazzled mum’s day go a bit smoother. Now to work on the inter-personal skills of the driver. One driver said to a passenger “Hurry up, I don’t have all day to chat” when the passenger was trying to find the right change and had the audacity to greet the driver! (As a side note: one of the buses I caught was from Civic to the Parliamentary circle and had no wheelchair access. Is this the bus tourists to Canberra would catch to visit OPH, Parliament House etc?)
