Kids Micro scooters on bus

Postby mortlock2005 » Tue, 09 Sep 2014 7:54 pm

Does anyone know if the non-folding variety of kids Micro scooters are allowed on public busses? We have a bit of a walk to and from the bus stops to get to school, and I'd like to put the kids on their scooters.

Only my opinion but I don't think it's a good idea, or safe for other passengers, and that some drivers might let you on and others not. Thinking a little more, I think it's a pretty bad idea.

I wouldn't want someone's wet, dirty wheels touching my clothes on a crowded bus.

I've seen folded ones, both electric and push, on buses.

I have something like one of those and I'm trying to find a light case for it for those few times I would take it on a bus or MRT.

Don't see why not, its not as big as those monstrous push-chairs and granny trolleys you see on the bus.

I don't see an issue if it is collapsible. The non-foldable ones may be tough to navigate without hitting another passenger.

I took the scooters on the bus today, and the driver barely glanced at them. Made it a much quicker trip to school. Hopefully all bus drivers are as easygoing.

Occasionally, the bus captain will ask the passenger to fold them but that does not mean the passenger should take advantage when he/she did not do so. Basic courtesy and social consciousness applies here when safety is concerned.
