Let's climb the bus to nowhere

What is wrong with this photo?

Hint: It has to do with heights

That's right! Welcome to the new breed of SBS buses! The one where your climb two steps to get to your seats. The one where you have to watch your head when you alight for the back row of seats. The one where you can forget about sitting if you are the 25th or so to get up the bus. The one where if you're in a wheelchair, you can forget about getting smooth entrance because there is a barrier in between the two doors at the front. The one where you will get blocked if you park your wheelchair where it's supposed to go because there is a pole that will definitely obstruct your exit when you slot yourself into the oh-so-comfy yellow cushion that is supposed to support your back. And oh! The one where you find your first seatbelt in a public bus.
