TTC to consider stroller limits
The TTC is looking into a complaint about strollers taking up too much space on buses and streetcars.
A 61-year-old woman brought the complaint to TTC commissioners on Monday, saying there should be a limit on how many strollers are allowed onto the vehicles.
TTC head Andy Byford, who joined Friendly Fire on Newstalk 1010 last night, says it's worth considering the idea.
"We may need to limit the numbers of particularly the bigger strollers," Byford says.
"We're certainly going to reflect upon this. I think it's about getting a sensible balance between maintaining safety and access for other users, but equally being mindful that for particularly a single parent on their own, it's not easy when you've got a stroller and kids to contend with."
Byford, though, doesn't like the idea of charging $2 for each stroller entering a bus or streetcar, another suggestion made by the complainant.
Staff will report back on the matter.
