for the B13, B14, B15, and B20 i ALWAYS see them jump out of their still in service buses to use the bathroom at the Brooklyn mail facility. its right as soon as you walk in and the security guards are fine with it

They should have a restroom on the buses. How much more can it cost? With the B/O the only one having a key and for their use only.

 

It takes away from passenger space, and now you have to add one of those special toilets... and a septic tank... and a water tank...

 

But the main reason is, it takes away from passenger space.

I see,but not all buses are packed,standing room only all of the time. So it isn't a matter of money but rather a space issue. I am sure it has been discussed within the ranks of the MTA.

Have a seat double up as a driving seat and a toilet seat?

I don't think the B/O's are that happy about it. Plus it will stink in the whole bus.

M15: Inside Whitehall Ferry Terminal, 126th Street Depot, Blimpies at City Hall

Yeah but, if a B/O goes inside Bronx Science, there will be a "Mr Gimble" scare (Mr Gimble alert means there is an intruder in the building, for those who do not know Bronx Science lingo). Reidy (the principal) won't approve of that. The reason why the truck lady has access to them is because she's credible and many of the students depend on her for food. Kind of an exchange, I guess.

your school doesn't have any School safety offices.

We do, they patrol the cafeteria and sometimes the courtyard. But B/Os would be prevented from entering the school building. It can set off a "Mr Gimble" scare.
