The new buses are fine. The ride is bumpier. These buses have monitors that show us the weather report, news from Reuters and advertisements. They have more leg room. These buses have commuter card readers. The old buses did not so I had to pay cash or use a 30-day pass. This means I will save money because I've been buying 30-day passes for the convenience even though I don't commute every day.
It is strange to sit on a city bus on the express way. I wonder what would happen if I pulled on the string to request a stop at the toll way oasis. It's not an official bus stop so I guess the driver would not have to oblige me. But they have a variety of treats there for everyone.
