Bus has broken HVAC

Back in November 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, but all in all the experience wasn’t terrible.

I was really happy 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 and 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, but I assumed things would warm up after we had started moving and the bus’s heater was turned on. However, after about half an hour I noticed that the heater still hadn’t kicked on on the bus and that the vents weren’t blowing any air at all. The bus driver didn’t say anything but as we neared the next station everyone was asked to take their stuff and get off. Everything was transferred to another bus, taking about 15 minutes, and we were off again. The driver explained that after we had left the previous station he noticed the bus’s HVAC equipment wasn’t functioning. There wasn’t an available bus to switch to back there so we had to get to the next station to switch. He apologized for the cold during the first part of the trip, at least, although he wasn’t to blame for the heater not working. The rest of the trip went by without incident, and the heating on the new bus made things much more tolerable.
