Bus Drivers Tell Tales

In Lane County, there are no trams, trolleys, or subways. Mass transit means busing. Every week day, an average of 43,000 riders board Lane Transit District buses. The men and women who drive those buses see and hear all kinds of things. They get to know their daily commuters. Bus drivers do tell tales. Here are a few.
