    Hey, Cosmo, be grateful you have any public transportation at all.

    My city’s “rapid transit” blocks all traffic on main roads on a regular basis with its stops and “time points” that are in the driving lanes of the routes.

    Most work places will not let you put down ‘transit’ (rapid or otherwise) as reliable transportation….

    OR 8 or 10 routes pass the stop, but only one goes where you need to go, invariably all the
    others will come before yours does. On a really bad day, two or three of all the others will
    come while you wait for yours.

    Check the daily schedule or walk.

    But it’s really personal transportation no matter what the cost.

    Philadelphians joke that there are two kinds of birth control using the “rhythm method.” The “Pony Express method” is where you pull out on time. The “SEPTA method” is where you pull out 10 minutes late!
    SEPTA, or Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority, is sometimes called:

    Brings back memories of CTA (Chicago). Waiting for a bus in the snow and near zero temperature. 4 arrive at once. 1st full beyond belief; 2 (almost as full), 3 & 4 won’t open doors until in the “bus stop”. I often walked to destination faster then bus.

    I’m a bus driver, and have a different perspective. If you’re hiding in the shelter the driver can’t see you. There is a glare on the glass from the headlights. Be in plain sight. Don’t hide behind a tree and jump out at the last possible second. Fourteen tons do not stop on a dime. I cannot violate the laws of physics. Instead of standing at the farebox for ten minutes counting out your sticky nickels, have your fare counted up and ready. It will give you something to do while waiting for the bus. Don’t make everyone wait while you gather up all your scattered parcels. Gather your things a few blocks before your stop. Be ready. I lose more time to the ill prepared than anything else.

    I’ve driven a transit bus for 38 years…and yes there are bus stops out of traffic but usually cars are parked there and police ignore or the stop is to short to get out of traffic. then when you do pull completely in stop, no one will let you back out in traffic…..then your late.
