We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to require that transit agencies and manufacturers make our buses safe for operators and passengers by adopting well-tested solutions, including:
1. Protective barriers that can be quickly raised or lowered by an operator, that do not obscure the operator’s view, and that do not block ventilation from the driver’s workstation;
2. Unobstructed views for bus operators that include open windshields, minimal A-pillars, and mirrors that don’t obscure an operator’s vision;
3. Workstations that include ergonomic seating, intelligent steering, adjustable pedals, and a dashboard and steering wheel that both telescope and tilt; and
4. Workstations that are free of pests.
