Bus Love

Article from the Guardian about the joys of London’s buses.

I like buses. More people should use them and then they would be nicer and go to places I need them to (like my work, that would be useful). I’m still trying for my driving licence and once I have that, the amount of time I spend on buses will be cut dramatically. But sitting on a bus, I see an incredible variety of people, from babies and toddlers to students to pensioners, and they’re fascinating. (And a little scary at times, I’ll admit).

Taking the bus makes me feel connected to my city and to the people in it. It gets me out of the safe world of my own places and the people I already know, and shows me a world of possibilities. I worry that I will lose that connection when I travel in my individually wrapped, hermetically sealed metal box.
