But wait, there's more.

There's just no polite way to say "Buy me things", is there?

In which our plucky young hero talks about the goddamn buses more yes more.

When I was living out west, most of the bus routes ran every half hour. A few ran every fifteen minutes. Except, of course, on weekends. You can't expect comprehensive, frequent, every-half-hour service on a weekend. Such foolhardy expenditure would bankrupt the entire system.

And, of course, the last bus ran at 10:30pm. Who could possibly need mass transit any later than that?

I try to remember all this when I'm sitting and seething at Broadview station at 1:30 in the morning, annoyed that I've been waiting six whole minutes and there still isn't a train. I try to remember that I used to plan my activities around transit schedules (miss one bus and you're stuck for a half hour) instead of transit routes (miss one streetcar and there'll be another in a few minutes). It's better here.

(On the other hand, I certainly wouldn't complain if I could get a monthly transit pass for $54.00, now that there's somewhere to go.)
