    My name is Loretta .A. Jackson-Cowans and something has to be done about people being allowed to board the buses, with their pants not pulled up. I was riding the bus three days ago and I saw so many men’s underware and it made my entire bus ride uncomfortable. One guy had his pants down so low that, other people and myself, saw nothing but his “Butt Crack”. It’s disgusting!!! I’ve asked various drivers if, they could ask someone to pull their pants up, only for the drivers not to take any action at all. When the bus is packed like it always is on the route 101 Minnesota/State Ave. bus, and you are sitting down with someone standing up in front of you with their underware and/or “Butt Crack” exposed, it makes things very uncomfortable. No lady especially wants to see that, in such close quarters. I spoke to a metro supervisor about this issue and I was told that, I’d have to talk to someone at City Hall like the Mayor. In my opinion, the KCATA is and should be responsible for what occurs on their buses and should have a “No-Exposure Policy” enforced on all of their buses and the driver’s of the buses should be telling people to pull up their pants when, they board the buses with their underware and/or “Butt Crack” exposed. There’s a time and place for everything and when people board a bus, no one should have to witness such sights.
