You could try asking your question here.
Maybe a strange question, but still...
I was in Toronto, Canada and had a ride on a bus. There is an inscription near the driver (on the front wall of the bus), and a white line - on the floor (it is on the right from you when you just entered the front door). The inscription tells the passengers that if anyone is standing between the white line and the door, the driver is prohibited to start motion of the bus. (Something like the federal law restricts the driver... I do not remember exactly what it goes like...)
Can anybody help me to find the exact text of that inscription?
And also, what is written on a little plate on the wall - "let the seat" or "yield the seat"? Or maybe I'm mistaken?
What do you call the internal room of the bus? A saloon?
I can't help you with the text, but the passenger area of a bus is often called the cabin.
not a teacher
I did not find exactly what you are looking for, but here are some rules in the US. The "yield your seat" probably refers to the first rule:
Make seats available to seniors, persons with disabilities, and other riders when needed.
Do not smoke, eat, drink, litter, or disturb other C-TRAN riders.
Stand behind the white line after paying your fare.
Avoid unnecessary conversation with the operator.
Adequately wrap and contain any article with an offensive odor or of a spillable nature.
Children are not allowed to stand on seats.
Report any unattended items, graffiti or other vandalism to the driver or a Passenger Service Representative
Thank you for your help!
I appreciate that very much!
Still want to hear from Canadians!
Especially from Torontonians.
