Driver 'Kicks Off All Passengers After They Refuse To Make Room For Wheelchair User'

Driver 'Kicks Off All Passengers After They Refuse To Make Room For Wheelchair User'

A bus driver in France has been hailed as a hero after he reportedly kicked off all his passengers when they refused to make room for a wheelchair user.

Francois Le Berre, who has multiple sclerosis, attempted to get on a bus in a Paris suburb, but the passengers already on board refused to move up and give him space.

Spotting the situation, the driver - who hasn't been named - reportedly stepped up and ordered all of the other passengers to get off the vehicle, before helping the man on and driving off with just him; like a sort of personal chauffeur service.

The story was shared on social media by Accessible Pour Tour (Accessible For All) on behalf Le Berre.

When translated, the post read: "Yesterday while waiting for the bus in Paris, nobody wanted to move themselves. As no one was moving the driver stood up and said 'Terminating! Everybody off!' After he came to see me and said, 'you can go up and the others, you wait for the next one'."

While another said: "Bravo to the bus driver, but shame on the passengers."

Others also took part in a bit of pile-on about the other passengers for refusing to move, with one writing it was 'what the passengers deserved'.

Similarly to the UK, buses in France have spaces for wheelchairs.
