Riding the Bus in Seattle

Jenny Asarnow

King County’s Metro Transit busses give one hundred million rides every year. Are you a bus rider? Do you ever look at the other passengers on your bus and wonder where they’re going? What’s on their minds? What’s on their walkmen? Who are these people, anyway? You may see them every morning, or you may never see them again. Or maybe you’ve never ridden the bus. Find out why Seattleites are so passionate about the bus-riding experience. From meditation techniques, to pick-up lines, to the best place to sit, we’re getting riders’ perspectives on mass transit. Meet students, professionals, the unemployed, homeless, young, elderly and in-between, as producer Jenny Asarnow delves into the broad swath of city life that rides the bus.
