Transit bus drivers push for bathroom access

Hartford

There’s a push to improve the working conditions of Connecticut Transit bus drivers.

In June, drivers protested over a lack of restroom access on the job. Some said it’s so bad that they resorted to wearing adult diapers or using bottles and bushes while driving.

According to a new survey by the “Amalgamated Transit Union,” transit workers from agencies across the state are forced to put their health at risk, rather than use the bathroom.

The union is expected to push for change at a news conference in Hartford on Friday morning.
