Street furniture, pregnant transit riders, and idling busses

A few things from the Star today:

1. An article on street furniture and how the city is about to put a call out for a RFP.
2. An article about pregnant transit riders and how people are hesitant to give up their seats for mothers-to-be. I will admit that this article didn’t sit with me well since I regularly see people give up their seats to the elderly, pregnant women, women with kids…. I’m sure the people the writer interviewed had very valid complaints, but the generalization irks me.
3. And busses at the Dundas and Bay terminal will be fitted with a parking boot if they idle or stay longer than the three hour time limit.
