I have noticed recently that everyone could use an update on the "rules" of riding the bus. Clearly I'm the authority since, at 24 years old, I've never had a drivers license and ride the bus more than the average user. Here are some rules that everyone should keep in mind while riding the bus:
- Use the back door! It exists for a reason. No one (especially me) wants to wait while you slowly move past the back door to make your way to the front. There is nothing special about the front door.
- Being fat is not a disability. Don't waste everyone's time by requiring the bus driver to put down the ramp. Walk down the two stairs, it wont kill you (although, the McDonald's in your hand might).
- Have your transit card ready when getting on the bus. Everyone on the bus knows you just spent 8 + min waiting for the bus to come, so use that time wisely and take the damn cash out of your wallet. Better yet, go get a Go-To Card so we never have to wait for you.
Rant over - I'm sure this will solve all my metro transit problems ;-)
