Septa West Trenton Train Line Complaint - Treatment from conductor

Review by mamiescott17 on 2012-01-19
PENNSYLVANIA -- Treatment from train conductor, or the person to take your ticket, was as if I was living in the 60, and riding with dr, m. L. King, just because this train carries mostly whites, I have to say 98% white people does not give the conductor the right to try to put me off telling me that I am on the wrong train to tenton and that I need to get off at the next stop and go back and catch that one, as if black people so not have a right to go to West Trenton. He made me feel as if I was in some kind of time zone, cause I was black. But then I had to do all I could do to keep from ending up in a jail cell for showing him just what time it really was, with black people and that we do not like being treated as a creature of some kind, we stand up for ourselves and if it takes a slap in the face or punch then we have no problem giving it, but instead I am taking out my lap top and writing about this treatment from this conductor on the West Trenton train from Philly and the time now is 4:29 pm our next stop so that this conductor can be spoken to about his conduct toward black people if this site means and can make a differnce, I am on car #288 the conductor is short with black hair looks a little close to Peter Lorey, (the old actor). Each time he looks at me he rolls his eyes I have a transpass and with zoneing still he charges me ten dollars now just last week I was only charged 4 dollars with a transpass, but today I am charged ten he did this thinking that I would not pay and get off the train, but I did pay got my receipt and will be getting off in West Trenton, with his distaste for my color all in his eyes, he had be glad that I am alone for black men no longer take this type of treatment and surely his face about now would have been broken, as I sit here writing want so much to do. So this is my complaint with Septa conductor who has a problem with black people and treat them with his problem, the time is 4:35 and the stop we are now is Philmount. Still this conductor walks and rolls his eyes at me, after he already has my ten dollars, are you kidding me?

Could it be that perhaps the conductor was simply mistaken about your destination and it had nothing to do with your skin color?

Violence will do nothing but get you into a lot of trouble. I can't say if your treatment was due to your skin color, or if the conductor is just a plain flat out jerk. Either way, I suggest calming down and then go to the following site and leave your comments there.
