Pasadena Transit: Rehire Bus Driver
Pasadena Transit bus driver Margarito Ayala was fired for doing Job #1: assuring the safety of his passengers.
On November 20, First Transit – the company that operates Pasadena Transit – fired Ayala because he refused to drive a bus without first having the driver’s side mirror adjusted for safety.
Mirrors on Pasadena Transit buses aren’t like car mirrors – it takes a mechanic and tools to change the height. Margarito requested that maintenance workers at First Transit adjust his driver’s side mirror. The third time he made the request, he was fired.
