The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Rancid transit

The wheels on the bus go round and round, but some folks just refuse to be mesmerized by the sight:

The signs on the sides of Madison Metro buses show people enjoying expensive warm-weather vacations, asking "What would you do with the $7k a year you could save by taking Madison Metro?" Even after therapy, I'd take that $7000 and make lease payments on a nice, roomy SUV so I won't have to park my backside in a too-narrow transit seat and travel to work in bodily contact with a stranger.

This, incidentally, is why people are clamoring for rail: for some reason it's believed to have a lower creeps and weirdos factor.

Tell that to the people who ride MARTA trains in Atlanta. My wife would rather ride the GRTA express bus from Newnan to the Nunn Center, on those days when her job requires her at the latter site.
