    City Bus Adventures

    I admit it. I LOVE riding buses. I find them fascinating for some odd strange reason. I ride the city bus(es) in my small city of ~32,000 on a daily basis, and have been doing so for years now, beginning in Grade 9 at age 14. Subsequently, in doing so, I have gotten to know most...

    I love catching the bus.

    Reading. Low cost. Low pollution. The walk to and from my stops. People watching. Not having to drive. Staring out the window. It's great!

    What? No Car?

    I live within easy walking distance of five bus routes (as well as good cafes, etc), so I do not have a car. Even if I did, I would probably still catch the bus, because it's the best option environmentally, and there are so many more chances for social interaction.

    And I Like It

    I like when someone is singing or humming on the bus, or talking about graphic sexual things as loud as he can, or doing magic tricks or playing hockey, or just being a weirdo. Free entertainment.

    I Hate It.

    I have to ride the bus to school everyday. It sucks. It's always crowded and there's dumb and cruel people. Like the 8th graders. They think they run the place. It's because of those rude people I'm glad summer is in 5 days. Hopefully next year the bus won't be as bad.

    Mostly By Choice

    I say mostly because I work downtown a lot and dislike paying for parking. That's how it started, at least, but then I found myself with a bus pass paid for by an employer and then it just became less driving and seemed easier to just ride the bus. Then I got really used to...

    Everywhere

    It's a point of personal pride that if I need to, I can get to all my usual haunts via public transportation.  I also can figure out how to get almost everywhere that I don't normally go!Now if you'll excuse me, I have to run.  Got a bus to catch!

    Fun Times...

    This is the story of a recent, highly amusing bus ride...Started off waiting for the bus. Sitting on my left was an old man, who most definitely was not all there. Sitting to my right was another guy who was much younger, roughly my age, I suppose, who seemed reasonably put...
