With public transit there is give and take. We can’t expect luxury, but what we can hope for is efficiency and not feeling like a sardine every single day. Think back to the frustration you’ve felt watching a bus go by because the schedule displayed a certain time, and your gullible-self thought you had enough time to grab a coffee before your morning commute.
We can fight it, we can say how much we dislike it, but the inevitable is here and it won’t listen to our protests, it will only take those protests and give us Instagram suggestions for people protesting the same thing. It’s a Hotel California epidemic where we can check out any time we like, but we can never leave.
