A bus driver who berated a mother and her crying 2-year-old into getting
off a bus last month in a Portland suburb has been disciplined, the
area's mass transit agency said Friday.
The driver had been on leave while the Sept. 29 incident was investigated.
The woman, a TriMet driver since 2001, received "appropriate discipline"
but remains employed, agency spokeswoman Mary Fetsch said. Fetsch
refused to identify the driver or say how she was disciplined.
TriMet General Manager Neil McFarlane said the "unfortunate incident" is
"not representative of the overwhelming majority of our operators who
do an excellent job every day."
The mother, Magdalena Rabadan, called her husband for a ride home. She
earlier said through an interpreter that despite a language
barrier, she understood the driver wanted her to quiet her daughter, but
there was nothing else she could do. Other passengers eventually
followed her off the bus in support.
