Is it just me or are the bus door sensors less sensitive as of late?

    People have trouble with these in general because there's often a delay or they don't understand how to trigger the door, but I've noticed more often now that it gets stuck for a while even when the person is doing it correctly.

    I think Translink should have stuck with the bar touch activated mechanism.

    :eek: i always thought the touch and the bar were the same thing?
    just a "push"?
    :confused:once i wasn't able to get off, quite embarrassing

    yup the bars are much better
    you could feel them go in as you push them and it makes a nice hiss

    I agree, the back door of the bus still confuses me. The "place your hand here" LOL I literally HAVE TO SMACK THAT PART.

    ^ It's motion sensor triggered if I recall correctly... you can technically just wave your hand but I'm not sure if there's also a touch component in addition to the motion sensor.

    Pisses me off 24/7 of the time on the bus.
