A long time ago, I had a lovely conversation with a lady who explained to me that she would get on the bus at the Free Ride Area, look at what the transfer is for the day and find a matching one. Then she would show that when she got off the bus, and keep showing it the rest of the day. After that, I’ve seen it a few times on the bus, but I never knew what to do about it.
I figured that when they eliminated the Free Ride Area, that would be the end of that. But I’ve seen it again. Now (at least the two times I’ve noticed it since the Free Ride Area went away) people (it might be the same person, it was the same route and I didn’t pay that much attention to them, despite the fact that I’m making a post about it now) pretend to be looking through their bag, and are like “just a minute, just a minute” while they find the right transfer. Since they’re right by the driver, and haven’t done it yet, this would be a better time to say something. Still, I’ve been quiet again. I feel terrible, but I don’t know what saying something would do. And I don’t want to be that guy if it’s someone who maybe can’t afford to take the bus otherwise, and who might be armed.
So should I say something to the driver? Should I call the person out on it, either before they show the transfer, or after? Should I just keep doing nothing? Does anyone else notice those, and what do you do?
