Adventures on the Bus

mbta_bus.jpgBecause of global warming, I have been taking the bus as much as possible instead of driving. This gives me plenty of time to think about…what’s wrong with MBTA buses!

The Charlie Card system works great—except for people who don’t have them. As people board the bus, it takes just 2 seconds to pay a fare with a Charlie Card. Those paying with cash hold up the bus for as much as a minute while they fumble with their bills and try to get the machine to accept them. It is really annoying!

Can’t someone invent a bill acceptor that will take a crumpled up bill?

    They have one, it’s called a BOX!

    (collection box really, they used them before they put in the new, stupid, “hi-tech” ones)

    And have you ever noticed that the people who take the longest to pay are the ones who will wedge themselves into the bus door to cut in front of people in line? The old, infirm, and handicapable have it hard, and I don’t begrudge them a spot ahead of me, but we’re talking fully-grown and not at all disabled here.

    I watched a clueless girl holding up a line of at least 15 people trying to baord a 39 bus. while holding a latte and her cell phone, she fumbled around in her big bag looking for money to put in the fare box. she did not give a crap about the line of people fuming behind her while she took her her damn sweet time.
