This is my first official post, please forgive any mistakes.
For the past couple years my city has been upgrading their bus payment system to an all electronic system, here is a link so you can get a better
picture of this new system.
Now that part of this topic is not what i find weird, what is weird is since February of this year they started to test a new rapid transit system
with automatic kiosks for payment at all bus stops on one route through the city, hold on to your seats cause its just getting started.
I have health issues that prevent me from driving so this past week I have been taking the bus to get downtown and bus 1, whitch is the only Q route
in my city, is the closest to me to get me downtown.
I have rode this bus twice a day for the past week and have never paid a single penny. Every time i get to the stop to use the auto kiosk for some
reason its always out of service, or the bus driver finds some kind of excuse to get me on the bus for free. Im not the only person either every stop
the bus makes people pile in for free without using the kiosk or paying the driver.
It has been the most strangest experience in my life. This bus runs from 630 AM to 1 AM, completely free to anyone who decides to get on. I have some
pretty weird stories about these past few days from riding this bus.
So what do you guys think? Anybody elses city doing anything similar?
