Do you remember your first transit trip?
Mine was pretty early in my life (‘baby me’ found TTC subways quite soothing) but the first transit trip I actually remember is when I was five and we took the bus to the library to meet Robert Munsch.
I gleamed as I saw the driver who was smiling and welcoming me aboard. I felt excitement as I got to drop the coins into the farebox and choose our seats. I remember the feel of the vinyl as my legs stuck to the material in the hot summer weather. I can even recall the ding as I yanked on the stop request cord.
To me, this was a totally new experience that was exhilarating and fun and that was BEFORE meeting my childhood literary hero!
