This morning I rode the bus to the Virginia Beach City Council's Strategic Planning Meeting. When I went to get off, the driver started to overrun my stop. I called forward. When other passengers realized what was going on, they spoke up. The driver immediately stopped and let me off with an apology.
My point: there is no place I know of with a greater sense of community than on the bus. You watch out for the other riders and they'll watch out for you.
