Back in September I had to take a bus to go visit family for Thanksgiving! It was a 3-hour bus ride, about an hour past my comfort limit, however all in all the experience wasn’t terrible.
- I was unquestionably thrilled to find that my bus was next to empty, meaning I got both seats in my section to myself instead of having to sit next to a stranger.
I brought a pillow plus a blanket along with my carryon items so I could get comfortable, although I wish I had brought a heavier blanket! When they first loaded everyone onto the bus it was cold, although I assumed things would warm up after my pal and I had started moving plus the bus’s heater was turned on, then however, after about half an hour I noticed that the heater still hadn’t kicked on on the bus plus that the vents weren’t blowing any air at all; The bus driver didn’t say anything however as my pal and I neared the next station everyone was asked to take their stuff plus get off, however everything was transferred to another bus, taking about 15 minutes, plus my pal and I were off again. The driver explained that after my pal and I had left the previous station he noticed the bus’s Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C device wasn’t functioning. There wasn’t an available bus to switch to back there so my pal and I had to get to the next station to switch. He apologized for the frosty while in the first part of the trip, at least, even though he wasn’t to blame for the heater not working. The rest of the trip went by without incident, plus the heating on the modern bus made things much more tolerable.
