  • Yes a few times, but the worst was in Grenada. The locals were annoyed that there were two white tourists taking up seats in the bus, and they were laughing at us and mocking us.

    Than on the way back, us and another white passenger asked the driver to drop us off at a specific spot and he asked us to give him more money.
    We didn't use public transportation there anymore after that

  • Nope..
    Our transport in India make optimum use of space..
    If you are lucky passenger you will get to stand inside.. The public transport
    Or you can hang on the outside..
    Seats are mostly given to women and elderly.. Because that's chivalry!.. Otherwise all will look at you like an asshole.. " who is young man and can't travel standing"
    It doesn't matters if you paid full for your ticket!..
    They also provide scope to sit on the roof to enjoy wind and open Scenery!..
    Although with risk of change in velocity leading to you falling off the roof.. Since there are no seat belts or even seats on the roof..
    Or you can simply hang back on the ladder to climb the roof.. If you like..
    Then we have scope of people to hang on the windows..
    And rest you will have to conclude when you visit and see the glory of overloaded transports..

    And if all this isn't enough as a special pick..

    You can find rare sight of school busses transporting overloaded kids to the school.. Like chickens from a poultry farm..
    At least chicken get there personal cages.

    • You should take the car, traffic is not that bad when you get used to it and you will still make it to your destination faster even if there is traffic.

    • @chriss Well, a car is not really necessary if you live in a place with decent public transport.

    • Yeah i can't afford a car nor can i mantain keeping one.

  • Yeah. @omgjassy will be able to relate.

    The Dutch train system is a) very expensive and b) often way too late. Imagine having 3 minutes to catch your connection (like I do) and trains being often too late. Then I have to wait for half an hour at the very least to get another train. Furthermore, the WiFi usually doesn't work and the trains are full

    I live in a smaller town so I also only have 2 trains an hour, but I also live in a place where people jump in front of trains. This can result in delays for hours and hours. It's very annoying.

    • Oh, and sometimes there are insane people on trains.

      There was one time a guy dancing in the train and falling over people. Or another time people just throwing around the anti-semitic and homophobic slurs. Or just the common drunk people who annoy everyone

    • Ik heb m sowieso maar het was een hypothetische situatie. Bijvoorbeeld, m'n broertje moet naar meeloopdagen. Kost hem letterlijk 35 euro om naar de uni te gaan heen en terug
