TTC admits buses a bust



Both Howard Moscoe and Chief General Manager Gary Webster say the new low-floor buses have been a failure due to their poor seating arrangement. Read about it in the Toronto Sun.

The TTC is admitting it botched the seating at the back of its new low-floor buses for people with big butts or long legs and is vowing to fix the problem.

In its bid to squeeze as many seats as it could into the Orion 7 buses that lose some seating because of the low-floor, the TTC shoe-horned seats into the raised back of the bus.

“They’re all jammed together so you can never get a comfortable seat unless your legs are two inches long,” TTC chairman Howard Moscoe said.

“It’s been a disaster,” he said. “We ordered 800 buses without fully knowing what the design would be.”
