  1. I’m appreciative that someone from the outside is seeing the issues of what is going on with the T. The way new operators are are treated is disgusting and nothing is being done to retain the ones who are good and I’m hoping that will change because myself and some others I know who are safe drivers and good employees that have been on for a few years are planning on leaving if we aren’t taken care of… but it seems the T is more focused on making sure employees don’t stick around long enough to receive the pension than the safety of the public and the livelihood of its employees
