@codewiz I love taking the bus in Los Angeles. Everyone was so polite thanking the driver when they got off!
@kai In Japan, the bus driver thanks *every* *single* *passenger* as they get off. They wear a boom mic, so at every stop you can hear "ありがとうございます" over and over again even from the back seats 😳
@codewiz I had the polar opposite experience when I had to take the bus to get to the train to finally end up in San Diego.
@sektor I hated the Caltrain last time I was in the bay area, and I heard that LA is a car-only city, so I was planning to buy a car soon after moving there...
...but so far I've been doing fine with a bicycle + public transit + an occasional rental car or car sharing.
