Opinion piece on riding the bus

This Gazette guest opinion piece is typical of that paper. While it discusses a legitimate problem, it’s written in a would-be comic and exaggerated style, on purpose, and brings in at least one irrelevance. Yes, buses go by with En Transit signs up front. No, they can’t pick you up, nor should they. They’re not on a route and they’re scheduled to go out of service, or go into service somewhere else. It’s like explaining things to a child.
