So many different ways to travel these days, driving our own car, Uber, taxis, and taking a train is even a fun way to mix it up. I would have been lost as a kid without the bus. My mom and dad did not drive, so when I wanted to go to the movies or head to a pinball arcade that was my transportation and I enjoyed it.  Plus there was a transfer where you could get to ride all day for one price.
