Description

On 11/4/10 CATA bus #540 passed a friend and I (we had the bright Planet Bike Superflash running and I was wearing a Class II safety vest) within a couple feet off our shoulders as we were riding our bikes southbound on Farm Ln. at about 7 pm. There was a car in the lane next to the bus but there was no traffic behind them; basically no reason for the bus driver to have not slowed down and waited for the car next to him to pass and then move over to avoid passing us so closely. Called in to CATA (394-1100 x236 - Operations Manager for fixed routes) and complained this morning. This was a series of similar incidents this past week that both I and other bicyclist friends have reported.
