I locked my keys in the trunk of my car last year. Instead of bothering people, I hopped on a bus. The gal driving the bus clearly had headphones on ''white iPod head phones'' I was surprised since it is illegal to do so. I figured bus drivers should be held to a higher standard.
This was our santa clara county buses not samtrans. However I would not be surprised if the driver of the samtrans bus was also wearing headphones either that or sleeping??

There's some lies in this story. The 292 doesn't even go to menlo park it goes to hillsdale san mateo. And the guy didn't report the accident at all. If he had he'd still have a job

I have seen VTA buses run red lights on Alma, Embarcadero, Page Mill, and Oregon . It is important that these drivers be reported, since they endanger passengers and whatever vehicle they may hit.
