A better bus experience more often than not

Posted By on Tue, Oct 31, 2017 at 4:19 PM

To the driver of the Colby bus to Dartmouth, your comment to me was asinine. Do you know why telling me to not say anything was exactly that? I heard you tell those getting on the bus after me they would have to get behind the yellow line. I made it no further than just past the yellow line because passengers don't have the common sense to move to the back of the bus and that's why I shouted for everyone to move to the back. It is your job, but many bus drivers, including you, fail to make it a comfortable and easy bus ride for all by ensuring this happens for passengers.The result, usually a crowd of people at the front while people struggle to navigate the ride. Maybe, you were showing off to your buddies you had the conversation with and didn't like a woman speaking up or didn't realize people were not moving to the back, I don't really know. All I know, I meant it when I said "You're welcome" as I got off the bus, what I should have added was, "I don't really want to do your job for you but I like a little room to breathe. Try a little harder at your job." Here's tip: ask the bus driver whose is always cheery, tells the time and stop locations, plus tells people to be careful because the bus is moving. He's made for this  customer service bus driving job. —Fed Up With Useless Jerk Bus Drivers
