PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Another report has surfaced of a rider with a fussy toddler getting kicked off a bus by a driver for the Portland-area mass transit agency TriMet.

The Oregonian reports (http://bit.ly/quyPcF ) that TriMet sent an out-of-service bus in August to pick up Amy Pittman and her 2-year-old son after a driver ejected them miles from their suburban home.

Last week riders reported that a driver stopped a bus, saying she couldn't safely drive while a woman's 2-year-old daughter was crying.

TriMet says the driver in the August incident was disciplined. The driver in the most recent incident said is on leave while the agency investigates.

TriMet says it reminded all its drivers Tuesday that crying and noise from youngsters isn't a violation of rules against noise intended to cause disruption.
