Quick question, I remember back in the day when your bus did not have a bike rack (particularly on the Orion VI) they'd let you on and use the priority seating spot to park your bike, and I was able to do it all the time on the 154 and 166. Since when did they longer allow that? I asked because I got lucky today that my 1 hour frequency 97 from bells corners was an Invero with a bike rack.
Also, was there ever a strict enforcement of not allowing overcrowding by devices that required priority seating? During the same time I used to remember the drivers would allow four strollers at the front of the Orion VI basically blocking anyone from properly boarding the front of the bus.
