Ok, I get it that driving the #1 bus might get a bit boring, BUT could ya not chat with your friend all the way from the bridge terminal to Mumford? And please don’t look at your friend’s phone!I know someone else complained about this. I have too, to Halifax transit, but the issue seems to be on no one’s radar. — Regular Rider Who Thinks Most Transit Drivers Are Doing A Great Job
I don’t know if I missed the memo, but at the bus terminal, the departure times now seem to mean “bus driver is going to wander off and then saunter back eventually, we might leave in 10 minutes, depends if I see my friend.” I understand that things may come up, but this has been a daily occurrence for weeks. — Hey I Have Places To Be, Thanks
Dear Bus Buddies: you know who you are. You stand up front near the driver ("your buddy") chewing the fat and blocking the entrance to passengers. Sure, there may be plenty of seats available to choose from, and gasp, sit in, but you prefer to stand and gab, gab and stand, narrowing the aisle, creating bottlenecks with total disregard for others. Could you be distracting the driver? Heck no! They blew past that frigid soul at the last stop because your stories are just sooo interesting. Please Bus Buddy, sit down. Get the fuck out of the way. Leave the drivers alone. Stop for the love of all that is safe and sound. I doubt the drivers will miss you. — Busing Bitcher
Why do you even have a schedule? It would be more accurate to just tell your customers, “Show up at the bus stop two hours before you need to be somewhere and we guarantee a 50 percent chance you'll be on time. May the bus gods smile upon you.” — Cold
Dear Students: When you are on a crowded bus, look up from your phones, and when you see an older commuter on the bus standing, get up and offer them the seat! It is called being polite. It won't hurt you, and it might also make you feel good as the older person sits and you, with better balance, ride the next few stops. Also, a bit about bus-stop etiquette: the person who is at the stop first gets on first. If you get there after six people have already been standing around waiting for the bus, you are the seventh to get on, not the first because you moved the fastest or barged ahead. Again, it is called being polite! Try it, you might like it. —Talkin' Transit
