All tales from Route ?

Tiny Dancer sing-along

From the driver: I got bored driving the Milledge Ave. route on a Friday so I got my entire bus to sing Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer” just like in the movie “Almost Famous”. Thanks to the guy who filmed this and then emailed me the video.

LA bus rider and bus fashion photographer, Ana H.R. takes Ethan of Doin’ it with Ethan on a bus ride. Love the quote “the bus ride can be convenient at times, inconvenient at times, and you always always meet crazy people.”

I’ve got problems and more gloves

Increased fares and frowns on the faces

Bus fares went up today, putting frowns on the faces of the ridership. There is something that might save money for some and I don’t think its widely known. It is possible to buy an Event Pass for $3.50, which is good for six hours and can be used on express buses without incurring the […]
