On Friday, I blogged an ABC7 report of a kid who was said to have fallen from a moving 38 Geary. Efforts to get more details or confirmation of this story haven’t gotten us jack, but an SFist commenter noted that
It seems like the 38 has had this problem for a while. A few months ago a woman on crutches was exiting in the back and the bus started to take off with her only halfway out. It was pretty terrifying.
So, is this a usual thing on the 38, and we’re demonstrating NY Timesesque cluelessness? That would be so embarrassing!
We’ve asked the SF MTA if they’re aware of an incident like the one reported by this SFist reader, and when we hear back from them we’ll update this piece. Update: SF MTA spokesperson Judson True informs us that, regretfully, there’s not enough information in the SFist commenter’s account for them to follow up.
Until then, have you, yourself heard of or witnessed any driving with the door open issues on the 38? Let’s hear it.
