Wow, what an adventure.

Took so long I was waiting for an attendant to come around and offer snacks.

On the brighter side, the fancy schmancy GPS bus stop calling out voice and LED display thingy kept me entertained.

Yes, the outbound bus did not have the GPS thingy working.

The return driver told me they monitor the buses with those units as well, they know where they are at all times and how long they might be sitting in one spot.

You take the bus because it was free for Earth Day?

It's not so much the topic but that there are SO many bus threads on the board. I have to bug PeteL about it.
