Extra training after MTA wheelchair woes

June 26, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
MTA workers in Los Angeles will get extra training after reports surfaced that some handicapped passengers were thrown from their wheelchairs while riding city buses. The MTA board approved the action on Thursday.

The board also called on Metro's chief executive to talk to labor unions about penalizing drivers who mistreat disabled passengers.

An Eyewitness News undercover investigation revealed broken equipment on buses and drivers who said they were untrained or too busy to help secure wheelchair riders.
