for about a year now, i have been riding the fine Van Hool buses (see on the left) of the AC Transit system with generally good results. what would take me 15 minutes in a car has been transformed into a 60-minute leisurely stroll through suburban fremont. the usual crowd is a sleepy mix of students and work commuters making their way to and from the bart station.
unfortunately, other parts of the 510 are not so benign. consider the video below taken from an AC Transit bus a couple days ago, probably somewhere in the Hayward/Oakland area.
this has to be one of the funniest videos i have ever seen.
