Cornwall Transit Stroller Policy
Cornwall Transitâ€™s revised policy allows passengers to board buses without folding up strollers or bundles buggies. Children may remain in stroller.
It is the responsibility of passengers to ensure that their strollers do not interfere with the safety or comfort of other passengers. They must also ensure they are in care and control of their stroller at all times. If a stroller is too large to fit safely out of the aisle way, or if a passenger has too many items hanging from the stroller, they may not be allowed to board the bus. Passengers traveling with a stroller must be able to board and disembark without assistance from the bus driver. Bus drivers may use their discretion and have final authority on whether baby strollers can board buses or whether baby strollers need to be folded.
Guidelines for Baby Strollers
â€˘ Baby strollers cannot exceed 24 inches by 48 inches (61 cm by 122 cm).
â€˘ Strollers larger than 24â€ť x 48â€ť will not be allowed on the bus.
â€˘ Children must be buckled into their stroller, the stroller must face the back of the bus and the brakes must be set.
â€˘ Caregivers will assume full responsibility for the safety of their children seated in a stroller.
Baby strollers may use the area reserved for wheelchairs, but must vacate these areas should they be required by passengers in wheelchairs. Passengers with baby strollers that must vacate areas for passengers with wheelchairs are expected to fold their strollers and store them between seats in order not to block bus aisles.
(The policy will be effective up to one year trial period, beginning December 1st, 2013. Following the trial period, the proposed stroller policy will be reviewed and modified as necessary.)
