TTC driver caught on video doing push-ups on a bus

Torontonias have caught TTC operators stopping for coffee at Tim Hortons and fare collectors sleeping on the job. Now, someone has filmed a bus driver doing push-ups right in front of a passenger.

A user named Ian B uploaded the short 14 second video to YouTube but didn't provide any additional information to accompany the clip. According to a Toronto Sun report, the driver won't face repercussions from the TTC because he wasn't breaking any rules.

"It looks as if it's an almost-empty bus, it looks as if it's fully-parked and looks as if there's no danger to anyone and is safe," said TTC spokesperson Susan Sperling to the Sun.

"I guess at this point, it would be expectations around 'Don't do that' kind of thing with customers on a bus. They drive very long shifts, so if he had stepped out of the bus and was doing that against a wall, that's like stretching and it would make sense."

Should bus drivers be allowed to do push-ups on buses? Let us know in the comments.
