Last Friday, I watched a woman on 10th Street in St. Paul start running for a bus at the corner of 10th and Cedar, a block and a half away. “She’ll never make it,” I thought. My light turned green. I stayed to watch. She made it. The driver waited. “Nobody’s ever going to hear about the good bus driver,” I thought.
Some 90 percent of bus riders in the Twin Cities say they’re happy with the service they get from the bus drivers here.
But you can’t do a news story about that.
You can, however, write a blog post. Bus riders: What’s your daily experience? Are you one of the 90 percent? Or one of the 10?
