I was on the number 1 Spring Garden on the weekend and there was a gentleman in a wheelchair waiting at Scotia Square to catch a bus. When the bus pulled to a stop he was refused service because the route is not wheekchair accessible and he was told that he would have to wait 45 minutes for the #14. What is the point of having these high priced/seating impoverished vehicles if they cannot be used for what they were built for in the first place? The buses don't have enough room because they were designed for the purpose of carrying people in wheelchairs and yet they won't pick-up someone in a wheelchair becuase it is a busy route and, yadda, yadda, yadda....
