People... you meet some really fucking idiots on the bus, and I noticed the amout of savages DRAMATICALLY rise in the evening.
Bus Drivers... some of these freaks are real jerks.
I guess riding the Bus in my case is OK. Not for everyone though... especially if you have to catch the Bus around 8 to 10 pm. That's where you meet many people you want to kill.
1. The girls you meet on there...are they girls you really want to meet? I dont know, I only went one day and 98% of the people were scummy. Not people Id strike up a conversation with anyways. If you take it to the valley or something I guess you might have better luck.
2. With gas so cheap right now its easier and cheaper to drive then to buy a $5 day pass. I did the math the other day based on my mileage and mpg, Gas would have to be at least $3/gallon for me to consider it again. That is my break even point. Realistically, probably more like $3.75 though.
3. I like the idea of getting sauced the last hour at work on a friday and getting chauffered home. I have
thought about that.
4. The train I took runs right through the hood (compton, watts, paramount, artesia) and you definetly dont see too many people on there who choose
to take public transit. They do it out economic necessity.
Now I know why LA is so car-centric.
