Controversial Oregon bus driver retires

Associated Press Published: July 12, 2012

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — TriMet says a bus driver who twice refused service to women with crying children has retired rather than be fired.

Claudeen Hendren ordered a woman and her four children off her bus in Forest Grove last month after a fare dispute led to tears. A police officer who tried to calm the situation said Hendren told him she did want people who were crying on her bus.

A TriMet investigation found that Hendren did not act appropriately.

The incident came 10 months after Hendren made national headlines when she stopped her bus and refused to continue because a woman could not quiet her crying toddler.

A board member of the union representing TriMet drivers told the Forest Grove News-Times that Hendren was upset and plans to file a labor complaint.
