POST SCRIPT:
These last two videos show what disabled people encounter all the time with the transport system. Before leaving the garage, buses are supposed to be checked that everything is in working order. In this case, the ramp for this 286 bus was faulty. It should not have been allowed to leave the garage, until fixed. The fact that a bus only has room for one wheelchair user is bad enough, but having to wait for another bus, due to a faulty ramp exacerbates the problem. Luckily the next bus had a working ramp.
